Nacho Duato‘s ballet Jardi Tancat is based on the lyrics of old Catalan folk songs, set to music and sung by María del Mar Bonnet. Its theme is the joy and pain of working the land and it is danced by three couples who continue to sow, plant, reap and thresh in proud defiance of their barren surroundings. In this programme, a performance of Jardi Tancat is preceded by an introduction in which the Spanish dancer/ choreographer talks about his work. There is film of rehearsals for the ballet and Duato is also seen preparing for the lead role in Jiri Kylián’s L’Histoire du soldat.

Nederlands Dans Theater: the name has long stood for innovative dance theater on the cutting edge. But when Czech choreographer Jiří Kylián works with the ballet, something completely new is created.
Wings of Wax
Jiří Kylián is a living legend. He is the creator of more than a hundred works, several of which form part of the repertories of some of the greatest dance centres in the world.
The Japanese fairy-tale, Kaguyahime, tells the story of the Moon Princess who wishes to bring peace to the Earth, but only succeeds in provoking conflict. Jirí Kylián‘s highly individual choreography is an exquisite mirror of Maki Ishii‘s sometimes haunting, sometimes violent music.
