Jiří Kylián's Car Men and other ballets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Car Men: Exactly 20 years separate Jiří Kylián's solo Silent Cries and his black-and-white film, Car Men, made in 2006 in collaboration with the Dutch filmmaker, Boris Paval Cone. What unites the two works is the sheer expressiveness of the dance on the one hand, and the distinctive facial gestures and body language of the dancer Sabine Kupferberg on the other. Kupferberg is the one who pulls the strings in Car Men, victim and plotter in equal measure, prepared at all times to stand up to life's problems - as well as to her three co-actors Escamillo, Don Jose, and Micaela - with humor and enigmatic wit. And so at the end of Kylián's unusual, slapstick-like tragicomedy, she simply abandons her three colleagues, self-assured and incorrigible - just like her role model Carmen. Silent Cries: This video records a performance of Jiří Kylián's ballet, Silent Cries, danced by the Nederlands Dans Theater. La Cathédrale Engloutie: This video records a performance of Jiří Kylián's ballet, La Cathédrale Engloutie, danced by the Nederlands Dans Theater
Kaguyahime : the moonprincess by Hans Hulscher( Visual )

18 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kaguyahime is one of Japan's oldest fairytales. The story of the mysterious Moon Princess inspired Jiří Kylián to create a full-length ballet and to commission a score from the Japanese composer Maki Ishii. Through its use of Western percussion instruments and Japanese drums, the work combines both Occidental and Oriental elements, its rhythmic vitality providing a musical structure for the poetic tale. Woodwind instruments extend the tonal color, as does the use of traditional Gagaku music from the Japanese court"--Container
