Toer van Schayk (1936) is a dancer, choreographer, artist and set and costume designer. This documentary pays tribute to this great artist and shows the development of his inexhaustible and versatile talent of his unparalleled choreography for ‘The Nutcracker and the Mouse King’ in Warsaw and the moment where he receives the Oeuvre Award from Benois de la Danse at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow.

But also personal moments in his life will be shown such as the period in which he loses confrère and best friend Rudi van Dantzig.
