About

Exactly 20 years separate Jirí Kylián’s solo Silent Cries and his black-and-white film Car Men, made in 2006 in collaboration with the Dutch filmmaker Boris Paval Conen.

What unites the two works is the sheer expressiveness of the dance on the one hand, and the distinctive facial gestures and body language of the dancer Sabine Kupferberg on the other. Kupferberg is the one who pulls the strings in Car Men, victim and plotter in equal measure, prepared at all times to stand up to life’s problems – as well as to her three co-actors Escamillo, Don José and Micaëla – with humour and enigmatic wit.

And so at the end of Kylián’s unusual, slapstick-like tragicomedy, she simply abandons her three colleagues, self-assured and incorrigible – just like her role model Carmen.

This Blu-ray provides two further legendary ballets by Jirí Kylián: Silent Cries and La Cathédrale engloutie.

“It’s fun and thought-provoking – definitely worth the time. [...] Kupferberg is wonderful, and her erstwhile husband’s ideas are challenging and powerful. [...] The four young dancers of NDT leave one stunned with their flexibility, strength, and concentration.” - Classical Net
