“The world’s most magnificent dancers… a retina-shredding spectacle of passion and power” (The Sunday Herald, Scotland)

Known for pushing boundaries with its bold repertory and distinct virtuosity, Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is prominently imprinted with an avant-garde aesthetic. Based in The Hague, this pioneering Dutch company’s non-conformist, progressive productions have put its collective of astonishingly talented dancers on the international map.

The company’s program includes two works by artistic director Paul Lightfoot and artistic advisor Sol León. In Shoot the Moon, performed to music by Philip Glass, revolving black-and-white walls create three separate rooms, each containing a heartbreaking view of a love story that is deteriorating behind closed doors. Singulière Odyssée, one of their newest works, is set in an art deco train station and performed to music by Max Richter, with dancers coming and going except for one who lingers, waits, and watches. The program also features The Statement by NDT associate choreographer Crystal Pite, in which two men and two women deal with a conflict in a boardroom setting, symbolizing corporate chaos and negotiation.

 

Artist Q&A. Friday, March 23, post-performance.
