One of a Kind presents a rare opportunity to enjoy an entire evening of ballet with the master of all masters, Jiří Kylián. Is there room for the individual in a group and who are we when alone?
A person rises from the theatre and balances over a jagged bridge in the middle of the stage floor. She is alone, she is brilliant, she is here to stay. While other men and woman, dancers and a cello player enter the stage, each with his or her own individuality and expression, she remains in place – even during the intermission – until the very end of the performance.
We are in Kylián’s universe. In One of a Kind, he gives us poetic, hypnotising dance that triggers emotions and reflection. Is there room for the individual in the multitude of the masses? But at the same time: Who are we without others?
This is explored in distinctive, variable scenery created by architect Atsushi Kitagawara as if, oddly enough, he knew which venues would be performing his creation 21 years later. During the opening, it is almost as if we are entering an interpretation of the marble house interior.
Only 20 seats are available for this performance in June. One of a Kind is back in August and September, for those who were not lucky enough to acquire tickets for June.
