On June 16, 2015, Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) organized a special event titled Souvenir in honour of the Lucent Danstheater, home to our dance company for almost 30 years. During the ceremony this video was shown with exclusive images shot during the opening of the building in 1987 of architect Rem Koolhaas, artistic director Jiří Kylián, Managing Director Carel Birnie, and choreographer Hans van Manen.
"NDT as a production house aims for excellence in all areas of expertise. It's not just about the development of choreographers, ballet masters, costume designers, technicians, set designers, logistics coordinators, pianists, marketeers, physical therapists, etc. Creative people are often concerned with the now. However in aiming for this high level of quality, the transmission of knowledge is essential in order to generate a development that is focused on the future.
With this future in mind, we are currently working on a temporary new production house for NDT in cooperation with The Hague Philharmonic, the Royal Conservatory, Dans- en Muziekcentrum, and the city of The Hague: a smaller Lucent Danstheater with the majority of our The Hague performances in the Zuiderstrandtheater in Scheveningen. Letting go, as we are learning, creates space for new and exciting things. I look forward to welcoming you there.
