Jiří Kylián’s Car Men
Exactly 20 years separate Jiří Kylián’s solo Silent Cries and his black-and-white film, Car Men, made in 2006 in collaboration with the Dutch filmmaker, Boris Paval Cone. What unites the two works is the sheer expressiveness of the dance on the one hand and the distinctive facial gestures and body language of the dancer Sabine Kupferberg on the other.

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.
