  • World premiere by Nederlands Dans Theater at Lucent Danstheater, Den Haag, January 23th 1997. Premiered by Compañía Nacional de Danza at Teatro Calderón, Valladolid, May 17th 2007.

Wings of Wax by opens with a fascinating dramatic image: a bare tree, hanging crown downwards with its roots in the air above the stage. Around it a low -slung spotlight traces a huge circle. The dancers, in tight dark costumes, emerge out of the black background, only to be absorbed back into it again. Jirí Kylián has succeeded in creating a work of great beauty and expressiveness. He shows he can do magic with movements. Never predictable, never forced, his movements are nevertheless so complicated that the eye can hardly follow all that is happening.
