7.5.2017 (SUN) | 5:35 pm | Forgotten Memories / Nederlands Dans Theater Celebrates Jiří Kylián : Bella Figura *

*Pre-talk with refreshments held at 4:30pm at Phoenix Lounge, UA iSQUARE

 "Dancers and choreographers are very fragile. 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  deficiencies that we have." Kylián said. Such rawness and fragility make his art even more beautiful.

 FORGOTTEN MEMORIES is the first time one can have a real close look at Kylián's life, his way of thinking and his most  significant creation via this documentary film. 





14.5.2017 (SUN) | 3:05 pm | The Red Shoes (Digitally Restored Version) #


 THE RED SHOES, a masterpiece written, directed and produced by the team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, is a  classic ballet film. The story centers on a talented young ballerina, Vicki, and her struggles between love and career. The title of  the film refers to a ballet based on a fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen, and the film deals with obsessive passion that  dancers devote to their craft and the stage. The well-crafted screenplay and the superlative and elegant choreography and  music are woven together to create a romantic and dream-like film about dance and life. Shot on location in Monte Carlo and  the south of France, THE RED SHOES takes full advantage of the intoxicating scenery and brilliant and colorful set design, with  the result that each dance number is considered a classic moment in film history.


21.5.2017 (SUN) | 1:10 pm | A Ballerina’s Tale / Nederlands Dans Theater Celebrates Jiří Kylián : Birth-Day #

 A BALLERINA'S TALE of Misty Copeland, the black swan in the world of classical ballet. Having started dancing at the relatively  late age of 13, by age 15 she was already an award-winning dancer, and in 2015 became the principal ballerina at the American  Ballet Theatre, the first African-American woman to be promoted to the position in the history of any international ballet  companies spirit that saw her prevail over self-doubts about her skin color, weight and body figure. With a dancer's steely  determination, Copeland also overcame leg injury to rise up again like a phoenix and return triumphantly to the world spotlight.

 "If you move towards something, you automatically move away from something else. Are we really clear in our intentions? Are  we really, that we want to move towards, or awar from...?" -Jiří Kylián

 BALLET 422 focuses on the originality and development when making a ballet piece. BALLET 422 refers to the 422nd original  ballet performed by the world-renowned New York City Ballet. The 25-year-old dancer and choreographer Justin Peck was  tasked with creating this piece from scratch in just two months, at the end of ehich the ballet must be performed in front of an  audience. BALLET 422 penetrates deep into the backstage to explore the inner workings of this elite dance troupe, revealing the  creative process behind this piece, the rehearsal process, lighting design and musical accompaniment—every step from the first  day of rehearsal all the way to the much-anticipated world premiere, BALLET 422 offers a rare and highly illuminating glimpse into the birth of a brand new ballet piece.
