ABOUT SOIR HISTORIQUE
Soir Historique revolves around the room as the event, and how this theme has found a way through NDT’s expansive sixty year oeuvre. Hans van Manen, NDT’s first grand maître of choreography, created Situation especially for the company in 1970. The piece is set in an empty room with nothing but walls, a door and a clock. Situation will be joined by Gabriela Carrizo’s The missing door (2013).
Performed in a surrealistic room on stage, the piece is true dance theatre, in which suspense, absurdity, humor and timing coincide sublimely. Inspired by these settings, these situations, the evening will be completed with a world premiere by Edward Clug, known for his subtle yet eloquently defined movement language. For NDT, Clug’s creative voice symbolizes a new generation of choreographic forces in the company.
ABOUT NEDERLANDS DANS THEATER
Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is one of the most productive dance companies in the Netherlands, if not in the world. With eight world premieres in season 2018/2019, NDT shows an unprecedented number of new ballets. Artistic director Paul Lightfoot has deliberately chosen only a few revivals: “It’s about artistic creation, not just choreography.”
The company has always been ambitious and idiosyncratic. Since its founding in 1959 by Benjamin Harkarvy, Aart Verstegen and Carel Birnie in cooperation with eighteen dancers from Het Nationaal Ballet (The National Ballet), NDT has tried to pave its own way in the modern dance field. Glen Tetley and Hans van Manen prominently imprinted NDT with an avant-garde aesthetic and their nonconformist, progressive productions put the company on the national and international map.
Looking forward to seeing you,
