LA Times


In this documentary, we go behind the scenes as Kylián shares two choreographies with the dancers of Lyon Opera Ballet. As they prepare for a performance which was due to take place in November 2020, this short documentary brings us into the rehearsal room. We see the sublime dancers of the Lyon Opera Ballet perform clips of two of Kylián’s characteristic choreographies, Gods and Dogs and 14”20’, and we delve into the creative process of the dancers and artistic team.

The film also includes an exclusive interview with Kylián, offering unique insight into his work and choreographic style.
