The Holland Dance Festival, Kylián Productions and Foundation, Zuiderstrandtheater, Korzo Theater and Productions and Dutch Dance Theater celebrate his birthday with a varied festival: “Celebrating Kylián!”. Throughout the year, various aspects of Kylián’s versatile artistry will be highlighted.

Jiří Kylián has been a decisive force in the history and heritage of Nederlands Dans Theater. As a tribute to Kylián as an artist and as a former artistic director of NDT, who played an enormous role in the development of the company, NDT is part of the Celebrating Kylián Festival in the Fall with an overview exhibition in the Zuiderstrandtheater. Rapenburg Plaza is involved in the production of the exhibition that will be officially opened in the presence of Jiří Kylián on September 22.
