We are delighted to welcome you to a new NDT-season with this unique program, Celebrating an evening with Jiří Kylián!
On the occasion of Jiří Kylián’s 75th birthday, we celebrate this inspired maker with an evening of three significant works that speak to his artistic vision over time. Tar and Feathers (2006), Gods and Dogs (2008), and Bella Figura (1995) were created for Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) and are exemplary of Kylián’s extraordinary craft and contribution to dance and the development of this company. Kylián’s indelible creative impact ripples in the hearts and minds of the dancers, audiences, and artists who have the privilege of collaborating with him or seeing one of his many works.
Staging this program has been a gift for us as a company and a transformative experience that has expanded us artistically. A heartfelt thank you to Jiří for creating these remarkable works and entrusting us with them. We would also like to thank our collaborators for their passion, care, and expertise and our incredible NDT team for their beautiful work and courage.
We look forward to seeing you throughout the season. Thank you for joining us tonight. Enjoy!
