Season 2023-2024

Season 2023-2024

Experience with us!

This season is an invitation to continue to dream, to question, and to come together.

We are delighted to share our 2023-2024 season with you! More than ever, it is important that we remember the possibilities of what art can do: its ability to connect and move us closer towards each other and ourselves.
Beyond borders or boundaries, art has the ability to embrace the complexities of our humanity and the world. This season is an invitation to continue to dream, to question, and to come together.

Season 2023- 2024 features eleven world premieres by new voices to NDT and celebrates the return of works by internationally renowned makers. It also highlights a diversity of perspectives, experimentation, and cross-disciplinary collaborations that we hope will inspire in profound ways. We trust it will bring you a richness of creativity and ideas in contemporary dance.

You will experience the new season not only in the (Dutch) theatres, but also online. Because in season 2023-2024, we welcome you to our new Digital Theatre with live streams or performances on demand. NDT’s dancers dance straight from the Amare stage into your living room and come closer than ever before.

Thank you for your support and interest in NDT. We look forward to seeing you throughout the season!

Artistic Director
