Choreographer Hans van Manen will turn 89 this summer. Despite his advanced age, he can still be found at the rehearsals of his ballets as often as possible. And that happens regularly, because his ballets are very popular worldwide. The Dutch National Ballet has rehearsed a number of Van Manen's highlights in six weeks. With the soloists, but also with the young talents of the junior company. And always in the presence of the old maestro. This documentary is about how ballets such as Sarcasms and Déjà vu are practiced and what is expected of the dancers.
