Jiří Kylian – Nederlands Dans Theater I – Vanishing Twin

In Kylian’s own words,Vanishing Twin is “a small meditation on time, speed, aging and all unfinished…

Music is by Bach, Prelude in B flat minor from the 1st part of The Well-Tempered Clavier.

The choreography alternates between very fast, then extremely slow movements as if to reflect the characteristics of time, in that it sometimes moves unbearably slow but then deceptively advances so quickly it seems almost imperceptible.

And as well for aging…with the passing of time..

This work is one for introspection and contemplation. It’s one which at its core is very humbling and brings with it the certitude that nothing stands still..or lasts forever.

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful, classical lines in this work and the way different body parts are isolated, very characteristic of Kylian’s choreography. Please like then share this with others.
