Jiří Kylián. Favourites
Jiri Kylian is one of the most important names in the world of dance of the XX-XXI centuries. Philosopher and joker, sage and hooligan, Kilian choreographs dances in his own special style, recognizable from the first cadence. The production is incredibly musical; he not only hears, but sees and feels the music. A master of plotless works, he nevertheless knows how to work with both narrative stories and purely illustrative tasks. The very different performances of our special project “Jiri Kylian: Favorites” once again confirm this.

TheatreHD Lectures
Maya Farafonova, curator of the TheatreHD dance direction, presented the ballet “Peer Gynt” at the Illuzion cinema hall
Балет Эдварда Клюга, поставленный на музыку Грига по знаменитой поэме XIX столетия, как и сам Пер Гюнт, существует на стыке миров и жанров. Между реальностью и воображаемым миром, между танцем и драматическим театром, между скандинавским аскетизмом и яркой зрелищностью сказки. Герою предстоит пройти трудный путь, а зрителям – вновь вспомнить о том, что, вероятно, нет на свете ничего важнее любви.
