About Nederlands Dans Theater 1: Sehnsucht/Schmetterling

 One of the world’s most innovative contemporary dance companies,Nederlands Dans Theater 1 are known for combining virtuoso classical technique with intriguing visual sets and themes. They return to Sadler’s Wells for the first time since celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2009, bringing two works never before seen in the UK.

Created by Spanish-British duo Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, Sehnsucht is a piece that relates to the German word meaning ‘longing’ or a kind of ‘intense missing’. Taking the concept as their inspiration, León and Lightfoot have created an evocative new work that looks at the binding, transformative power of love.

Completing the bill is Schmetterling, meaning ‘butterfly’, suggesting the transitional nature of existence and the continuous crossing of paths between life and death. In this new piece – also choreographed by Lightfoot and León– duets and trios echo all types of possible love stories, with music by indie rock band Magnetic Fields and their ’69 Love Songs’ as well as contemporary composer Max Richter.

“When people say they don’t ‘get’ contemporary dance perhaps they should try NDT” THE INDEPENDENT
