Jiri Kylian: Forgotten Memories (Memoires D'Oubliettes)
Jiri Kylian 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 centers in the world. Due to the choreographer's extreme reluctance to engage in a documentary, this film is exceptional. For the first time one can have a real close look at Kylian's life, his way of thinking and at his most significant creations. The film was shot in Den Haag, Prague, Monte-Carlo and Paris.
"Dancers and choreographers are very fragile,. . .very breakable and - we are endangered species. Because we have decided that we will declare our body as a work of art. And it takes a lot of courage to actually open up and show yourself 'naked'. With all the faults, with all the mistakes, with all the deficiencies that we have." - Jiri Kylian
