Hans van Manen , 75th Birthday Hans van Manen special edition (2 DVD's)
Born on July 11, 1932 Hans van Manen became one of the famous Dutch ballet dancers and choreographers. In 1960 he founded the Nederlands Dans Theater and was its art director from 1961 until 1970. From 1974 until 1987 he worked for the Dutch National Ballet. He was awarded by the Deutschen Tanzpreis in 1993, by the Erasmus Prize in 2000 and in 2004 by the Musikpreis der Stadt Duisburg. His work includes more than 90 choreographies. Over ten years ago a few reviewers criticized Hans van Manen for overly repeating himself. His work gave them a feeling of “déjà vu”, the impression that they had seen it all before. Going on pensionable age, the choreographer responded to the criticism as if stung, showing them that he was still a force to be reckoned with. In barely two years’ time, between June 1995 and June 1997, he created six masterpieces in a row which later are produced by NPS Television and are included in this DVD.
The following ballets with Nederlands Dans Theater are included on this DVD: Déjà vu, Kammerballett, The Old Man and Me, Solo
