Vanishing Twin - an unfinished work

With Vanishing Twin (2008), Kylián was inspired by the medical phenomenon of the same name, whereby during the pregnancy of twins, one foetus displaces the other until the latter disappears completely. The
ballet symbolizes temporariness, suppressed emotions and the dark side we all share, but would rather not reveal. Vanishing Twin was nominated for the Swan, ‘Most Impressive Dance Production of 2008’.

World premiere

7 februari 2008, Lucent Danstheater Den Haag.


Jiří Kylián
