Gabriela Carrizo (Argentina) blurs boundaries between dance and theatre in dramatically driven works that are imbedded in the exploration of the human experience. As a choreographer, she creates atmospheric, cinematic works that offer performers a space to emphasize the exploration of real –life situations, emotions and encounters. Together with Franck Chartier, Carrizo founded the Brussels-based collective Peeping Tom in 2000. In describing her work, she says: “I constantly try to look for new perspectives to make the parallel mental world visible; a world in which hyper individual fears, oppression, fantasies, and thought constructions of the characters and artists break into a regular social relationship.” Her world premiere for Dreams 360 will mark her second and long awaited new creation for NDT 1.

As a fresh voice in the world of dance, Roy Assaf (Israel) is one of the most sought-after emerging choreographic voices today. He completes Dreams 360 with a world premiere, which marks the choreographer’s debut with NDT. Through intricate and poetic gestures, his choreographic signature is marked by the body ability to make choices in space, the sound environment in which they create those movements and consequently an ongoing exploration of the intelligence of the body.
NDT associate choreographer Crystal Pite (Canada) is a highly demanded voice in dance. Pite’s riveting works depict the complexity and humanity of our generation with a distinctive tone that is rich with imagination and intelligence. In 2002, the choreographer and dancer founded Kidd Pivot whose name — part outlaw, part balletic technique — embodies her own balance of “recklessness and rigor”. As a choreographer, Pite is an image-maker that creates work of rare distinction and strikes a hybrid between dance and theatre. Through the virtuose poetry of her choreography, she is always able to seek a humanity and craft space and musicality in bold, rich scores. NDT is very excited to present another world premiere by Pite whose work speaks across borders and audiences around the world.
Nederlands Dans Theater and Complicité present this new work by Crystal Pite, in collaboration with Complicité Artistic Director Simon McBurney. This is the first piece in a triptych of collaborations between these two world-renowned artists that will be presented between 2022 and 2025. Complicité is an international touring theatre company based in London. Complicité works across art forms, believing theatre, dance, opera, film, installation, publication and participatory arts can all be sites for the collective act of imagination. Founded in 1983, the Company has won over 50 major theatre awards worldwide. This is NDT’s first co-production with the Company.
