To celebrate the 75th birthday of Hans van Manen, there is a festival of his works running for a few weeks in Sept 2007 in Amsterdam. Companies participating include Dutch National Ballet, NDT1, San Francisco Ballet, Bavarian State Ballet and Stuttgart Ballet, and dancers from the Kirov. Sofiane Sylve of DNB / NYCB appears.

The Edinburgh Festival showcased van Manen's work some time back in the 90s in a similar kind of format, with a number of different companies appearing on the same programme. A good way to catch up on different companies.
