Reviews

"Not so often the spectator of a new ballet has just one wish: to see it again."

- De Telegraaf (1995) on Bella Figura

"This more recent work by Jiří Kylián is bursting with supernatural artistry"

- Trouw on Claude Pascal

"Only a grandmaster like Kylián can make something as unimaginable as (in)finity so tangible. And only a dance ensemble such as NDT knows how to bring this so close to the audience."

- Trouw on Vanishing Twin

In this programme

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.

Bella Figura - Jiří Kylián
Bella Figura (1995) is considered a Kylián masterpiece. It was one of the first times he deconstructed the stage where theatrical elements acted as a metaphor.

Claude Pascal - Jiří Kylián
Less is more and more is less. In Claude Pascal (2002) four dancers express a family history by means of grotesque gestures and surrealist texts. Against the backdrop of gigantic mirrored doors they advance their philosophical theses. This play features three timeless, wonderful duets, in which the
energetic movements subtly slow down until almost still.

Vanishing Twin - Jiří Kylián
With Vanishing Twin (2008), Kylián was inspired by the medical phenomenon of the same name, whereby during the pregnancy of twins, one foetus displaces the other until the latter disappears completely. The ballet symbolizes temporariness, suppressed emotions and the dark side we all share, but would rather not reveal. Vanishing Twin was nominated for the Swan, ‘Most Impressive Dance Production of 2008’.
