Jiří Kylián: Forgotten Memories (Mémoires D‘Oubliettes)

A Film by Don Kent & Christian Dumais-Lvowski

Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.

Jiří Kylián is a living legend. He is the creator of more than one hundred works, several of which form part of the repertories of some of the greatest dance centres throughout the world.

Due to the choreographer’s extreme reluctance to engage in a documentary this film is exceptional. For the fi rst time one can have a real close look on Kylián’s life, his way of thinking and the most important of his creations. The film is shot in Den Haag, Prague and Paris.

“Dancers and choreographers are very fragile…very breakable and – we are an 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.” Jiří Kylián
