Great Performances

Can't Stop Now (#2516)

Few dancers imagine a professional life beyond 40, but one company embraces the rich potential of the older dancer as its focus. Under artistic director Jiri Kylian, the Nederlands Dans Theatre 3 (NDT3) breaks stereotypical limitations and pushes the boundaries of dance. This program features six NDT3 dancers: former Nureyev protg Gary Chryst of the Joffrey Ballet; Sabine Kupferberg of the Stuttgart Ballet; international soloist Gerard LeMaitre; Martine van Hamel of American Ballet Theatre; Jeanne Solan of the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company; and Karen Kain of the National Ballet of Canada. Through performances and interviews, each of the dancers reveals an individuality and expressiveness that can only come from the mature dance artist. [56 minutes] Closed Captioning
