Nederlands Dans Theater — 50th Anniversary Programme
Nederlands Dans Theater celebrates 50 years as one of the world’s most innovative contemporary dance companies with two programmes of works performed by all 50 dancers of both NDT I and II.
Programme One features Paul Lightfoot and Sol León’s Subject to Change for NDT ll, which pitches a beautiful duet against the threatening outside forces of four male dancers. NDT I and II perform together for Jiri Kylián's acclaimed Whereabouts Unknown, which is inspired by the choreographer's interest in the tribal movements of the Australian Aborigines and for Dissolve in this - a new creation by Johan Inger, newly appointed Associate Choreographer of NDT.
Programme Two features two works performed by NDT I; Kylián’s final work as Resident Choreographer, Mémoires d’Oubliettes and his austere and angular masterwork Symphony of Psalms. Lightfoot and León will present Studio 2 - a new work for the dancers of NDT ll.
