Jirí Kylián is a living legend. He is the creator of more than a hundred works, several of which form part of the repertories of some of the greatest dance ensembles in the world.

Due to the choreographer’s extreme reluctance to engage in a documentary, this film is exceptional. For the first time one can have a really close look at Kylián’s life, his way of thinking and at his most significant creations. The film was shot in Den Haag, Prague, Monte-Carlo and Paris.

“Dancers and choreographers are very fragile… very breakable and – we are an endangered species. Because we have decided that we will declare our body as a work of art. And it takes a lot of courage to actually open up and show yourself naked. With all the faults, with all the mistakes, with all the deficiencies that we have.” - Jirí Kylián

Bonus: Additional ballet performance - Wings of Wax
Nederlands Dans Theater, Choreography by Jirí Kylián

Kylián works magic with movement – it is never predictable, never looks forced – and yet it is so accomplished that the eye can hardly follow everything that is happening.” - NRC Handelsblad
