Not too many. And not a step too few. Clear lines and always to the point. This is how you can characterize the oeuvre of the now 88-year-old Hans van Manen. Although Hans van Manen's work seems simple due to its abstraction, it certainly is not. Van Manen requires risk, vitality and swing in his ballets. In his more than sixty-year career, he has created more than 150 choreographies. His work is performed and praised worldwide. In this two-hour special, some of his best works can be seen in its entirety. A candid interview about glorious times of yore, discrimination against the art of dance, his hate for frills and his special lifestyle.
