New York Times

“Few choreographers in recent times burst upon the scene with the impact of Jiri Kylian…. Scores of younger choreographers were influenced by the emotional and kinetic thrust of his signature style, a highly physical fusion of ballet technique with the idiomatic freedom of modern dance. As an artist, he has been remarkably deep and original.”
