Programma IV is ‘rough, raw and earthly’
On April 3 Programme IV premiered in Lucent Danstheater, The Hague. The double bill by Hofesh Shechter is the beginning of a sustainable relationship; in 2016 the choreographer will create new work for NDT 1. The powerful performance with its own soundtrack can be witnessed tonight and tomorrow at Carré, April 22 in Maastricht, April 24 in Rotterdam and April 26 in Eindhoven. The spectacle earned four stars from national press papers:
“Rough, raw and earthly (…) Shechter’s work has a strong, somewhat aggressive, urban atmosphere, which makes it pre-eminently suitable for a young audience”
“In 2016, the sought-after choreographer will come to The Hague to create new work for the Dutch top company, an attractive prospect. There is an obvious chemistry between the dancers of NDT 1 and the dance language of the Israeli Hofesh Shechter."
“Uprising makes an indelible impression”
“In your rooms is a groovy and entertaining assault on the senses.”
“The dancers of NDT 1, praised for their gravity transcending qualities, have convincingly made Shechters ground-based technique their own. The collaboration between NDT and the rising star makes us hungry for more.”
“Pure, raw and with the adrenaline of a rock concert: his dance is an immersive experience”
"Expressive and impressive"
“NDT bangs with Hofesh Shechter”
