Dancing Dutch brings together four choreographers who despite their different origins have roots in our country, where they celebrated their first big successes. For the first time, Dutch National Ballet is dancing a creation by Jiří Kylián, the choreographer who brought international success to Nederlands Dans Theater for over thirty years. The programme also comprises a masterpiece by the most famous choreographer of the Netherlands, Hans van Manen, and premiere ballets by Associate Artist David Dawson and Young Creative Associate Milena Sidorova.

The Dutch National Ballet premiere of Wings of Wax fulfils the dream of many a dancer with the company: finally getting the chance to dance a work by Jiří Kylián, one of the greatest choreographers of our time. In this ballet, inspired by the workings of gravity and the famous myth of Icarus, Kylián conjures with movement. It is never predictable and never looks forced, yet the eye can barely follow all that happens.
