This intimate portrait follows Kylian as he travels to Prague for the first time since the change of government and to rehearsals in Stuttgart, where he began his career as a dancer with John Cranko and choreographed his first ballet. There is also film of the Nederlands Dans Theater performing at a Gala Evening in Paris in the presence of Queen Beatrix and François Mitterrand, and an official visit to the company by former Czech premier, Vaclav Havel. Many extracts from Kylian ballets are included, illustrating the breadth and diversity of his work to date as well as fascinating archive film and interviews with colleagues."Ballets choreographed by Jiri Kylian are passionate, rhapsodic, even tempestuous."
