ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Celebrating sixty years of NDT without a bow of respect to Kylián would simply be no celebration at all. Sometimes, I wonder is a full evening solely dedicated to one of the most profound, shape shifting figures in NDT’s history who’s creative visions have moved the company to unparalleled heights. Bella Figura (1995), one of the true classics on NDT’s repertoire, is considered a Kylián masterpiece. In Claude Pascal (2002) four dancers express a family history by means of grotesque gestures and surrealist text, against the backdrop of gigantic mirrored doors. Vanishing Twin (2008) symbolizes temporariness, suppressed emotions and the dark side we all share, but would rather not reveal.
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.
