    The unique production Kylián – Bridges of Time features works by Jiří Kylián, the celebrated Czech choreographer, a true icon of global dance. The mixed bill includes four of his opuses – Bella Figura, Gods and Dogs, Petite Mort and Six Dances, all of them gems that adorn our repertoire. The Czech National Ballet feels greatly honoured to stage these Kylián works, which represent a challenge for its dancers, who have thus been afforded an enormous professional experience.

    The ballet evening KYLIÁN – Bridges of Time is dedicated to the work of Jiří Kylián, a renowned choreographer born in the Czech Republic who gained international fame.

    About

    Dance does not only serve to express joy, sorrow and emotional states of mind, it can also be a prayer, a ritual, therapy or intellectual structure. In limitless ways, dance is capable of depicting the abstract and reality alike. And when done professionally, it is as though the dancer were saying: I am a work of art! Jiří Kylián

    The production Kylián – Bridges of Time presents on stage the very essence of Kylián’s personality, that which makes the audience hold their breath, quickens their pulse, brings tear to their eyes and compels us to ponder pure beauty and perfect art. Such facets are almost palpable in Bella Figura and Gods and Dogs, as well as in the “Mozart choreographies” Petite Mort and Six Dances.
    “I am glad that Jiří Kylián has chosen these choreographies in particular for staging in Prague. I consider them highly sensitive and think that they are among the most remarkable of his creations”, added Filip Barankiewicz, the Artistic Director of the Czech National Ballet.

    Premiere: Kylián – Bridges of Time was first performed on 11 October 2018 within the celebrations marking the centenary of the foundation of the Czechoslovak Republic. The Czech National Ballet has staged the current, updated production of Kylián – Bridges of Time since 21 November 2019.
