1. Forgotten Land

"I have taken the idea of the everlasting presence of the ocean

as a life giving and life taking force,

as a main theme for my choreography.

Another very important source of inspiration for me was the famous painting

by Edward Munch "Dance of Life" (1899),

in which the woman in three stages of her life, is very clearly present."

 

-Jiří Kylián

2. Gods and Dogs

“That none of us was born perfect.

In the course of our life, psychological twists and turns, acquired or inherited and illnesses will become our constant companions.

It is this border, between “normality and insanity”, between “health and sickness” and all the norms which determine the one or the other, which fascinates me.

But regardless of the borders, within which these human conditions will be confined, surely no positive developments can ever be accomplished without the help of a healthy portion of madness.”

 

- Jiří Kylián

  

( Premiere : 2008, Nederlands Dans Theater 2 )

 



3. Sechs Tänze

"It is Mozart’s spirit, 

and his acceptance of the fact, 

that our life is not more than a masquerade or a dress rehearsal for something deeper 

and much more meaningful, 

which has inspired me to make this work."

 

-Jiří Kylián
