Product Notes

Choreographer Jiri Kylian's work frequently manages to delve deeply into the mysteries of human existence, revealing it's hidden aspects. His kinetic imagination vividly conjures up moods and situations of such intensity that the dance becomes an ideal medium for posing important existential questions and delving into social phenomena. This Blu-ray presents three early ballets by of one of the most important choreographers of our time. Stravinsky's Les Noces (Svadebka) pictures the ceremony of a traditional Russian country wedding. The music, with it's fast pace and intricate rhythmic structures, presents the composer's greatest choreographic challenge. Jiri Kylian's ballet set to Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms captures the archaic power of the music. A post-68 Czech exile, Jiri Kylian was moved to create Torso (Music: Toru Takemitsu) by the plight of the Russian dancers Valery and Galina Panov, who found asylum in Israel. Jiri Kylian has succeeded in imposing his unmistakable vision of contemporary ballet with the force of genius and grace. (Lifetime achievement award for Jiri Kylian, Venice Biennale 2008, 6th Int'l Festival of Contemporary Dance)
