Ballet "Silk and Knife"

Czech Master choreographer Jiří Kylián in the Royal Danish Theatre

Silk and Knife

SILK AND KNIFE by Jiří Kylián

27 October - 27 November 2007

About
Master choreographer Jiří Kylián draws on the abstract language of dance to explore the depth of the human soul. His uniquely original and sensual choreography bridges the realm of imagination and reality, brutality and beauty.

The program features no less than five premieres of works by Jiří Kylián - among them an entirely new ballet commissioned by the Royal Danish Ballet.
