Celebrating sixty years of NDT without a bow of respect to Kylián would simply be no celebration at all. Sometimes, I wonder is a full evening solely dedicated to one of the most profound, shape shifting figures in NDT’s history who’s creative visions have moved the company to unparalleled heights.
Bella Figura (1995), one of the true classics on NDT’s repertoire, is considered a Kylián masterpiece. In Claude Pascal (2002) four dancers express a family history by means of grotesque gestures and surrealist text, against the backdrop of gigantic mirrored doors. Vanishing Twin (2008) symbolizes temporariness, suppressed emotions and the dark side we all share, but would rather not reveal.
