Russian legendary dancer, choreographer and actor, Mikhail Baryshnikov is in Israel to perform “In Paris”, the new play he is starring in, at the Suzanne Dellal Center of Tel Aviv beginning on November 15. This is Baryshnikov’s third visit to Israel. Criticism of his visits to Israel on political grounds does not trouble Baryshnikov. “I am worried,” he says, about the situation in the Middle East, “but I think boycotts of the arts – this is the wrong way to go.” He recounts that after last year’s performances he was asked in interviews why he does not support a cultural boycott of Israel. “It has nothing to do with my work,” he responds.
