Nederland Dans Theater, the International Pride of The Hague

The New York Times: “If you see only one live performance this year… Nederlands Dans Theater is the one to see.” LA Times: “Unpredictable NDT is memorably modern.”

 

The double performance Side A: Split into One and Side B: Adrift underline, on the one hand, the dancing prowess of the ensemble and, on the other hand, its theatrical qualities. Side Aencompasses three world premieres by choreographers Edward Clug, Medhi Walerski and Sol León & Paul Lightfoot. In this varied program, the power and poetry of pure movement is brought together. The audience will be treated to choreographic voices that illustrate that true beauty can tell a variety of stories through dance.

 

The piece by Gabriela Carrizo, from Argentina, and Franck Chartier, from France, requires huge physical power from the dancers. In the program Side B: Adrift, the existing pieces The Missing Door by Carrizo and The Lost Room by Chartier will be complemented with new choreography, a world premiere, by Chartier. The outcome is a trilogy that fully expresses the theatrical qualities of the ensemble.

 

Virtuoso Franz Schubert’s music is leading in NDT 2’s programThe Schubert trilogy, accompanied live by musicians of the Ballet Orchestra, are made up of One on One by Jonathan Inger, Cacti by Alexander Ekman, and a world premiere by Marco Goecke.

 

The Hague Zuiderstrandtheater will be hosting a multimedia exhibition on Jiří Kylián from September 22 till November 26, called Celebrating Kylián, one in a series of activities in celebration of 70-year-old, world-famous master choreographer Jiří Kylián, that are being organized in The Hague.
