Jiří Kylián. Favourites
Jiri Kylian is one of the most important names in the world of dance of the XX-XXI centuries. Philosopher and joker, sage and hooligan, Kilian choreographs dances in his own special style, recognizable from the first cadence. The production is incredibly musical; he not only hears, but sees and feels the music. A master of plotless works, he nevertheless knows how to work with both narrative stories and purely illustrative tasks. The very different performances of our special project “Jiri Kylian: Favorites” once again confirm this.
