Celebrating Kylián! No. 3 Codarts & Koninklijk Conservatorium
Jiří Kylián | Codarts Rotterdam, Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag
It goes without saying that young dancers should be part of this celebration of Jiří Kylián’s 70th birthday. After all, they are the ones who are going to make the connection to the future of dance and they are the new generation that will inherit the repertory of dance artist Kylián. The two dance academies of Rotterdam and The Hague have compiled an exclusive collage program comprised of various works from the oeuvre of a master choreographer. The repertory of Kylián is studied at both academies every year. From 2010 to 2013, Codarts Rotterdam reflected on an intense collaboration with the master choreographer within the framework of the research lectorate One Of A Kind. For years, The Koninklijk Conservatorium is bringing students in contact with the movement language of Jiři Kylián and recently presented an integral version with live music of Fallen Angels on the occasion of the 60th jubilee of the ‘school for young talent’. The Celebrating Kylián! Program includes WhereAbouts Unknown, parts of A Way A Lone, Bella Figura, and the ensemble piece that Kylián created in 2013 for Codarts, Stonehenge.
Young Dancers Celebrating Kylián! is an unforgettable evening filled with pure Kylián-dance delight.
