2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Jirí Kylián, the Artistic Director of the world famous Nederlands Dans Theater for over 20 years, presented the US Premiere of 'Songs of a Wayfarer," to rave reviews in 1982 at the Metropolitan Opera House.
Peridance Center is proud to present a Repertory Workshop of Kylián's 'Songs of a Wayfarer' taught by Jeanne Solan, an extraordinary teacher who danced with Kylián's NDT for over 25 years. The workshop will focus on a series of five pas de deux, set to Mahler songs (Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen), and is packed with unexpected lifts and supported leaps. In "Songs of a Wayfarer," Kylián charts the passage of human relationships with his surprising and deeply penetrating style.
This workshop is open for advanced level dancers only. The entirety of the workshop will focus on partnering phrases. Therefore, male dancers are strongly encouraged to participate. Students must pre-register online or in person for the full week.
