Gods and Dogs - an unfinished work

Gods and Dogs (2008) is the 100th choreography Jiří Kylián created for NDT. This mysterious ballet by the master choreographer visualizes the fine line between normality and abnormality. Or as he himself puts it: “Surely no positive developments can ever be accomplished without the help of a healthy portion of madness.” ods and Dogs is called ‘an unfinished work’, referring to Kylián’s fascination for the beauty of what is left incomplete in life. Gods and Dogs won the Swan Most Impressive Dance Production 2009.
