Crystal Pite The Other You

The ticket sales for the performances of Endlessly Free in the Zuiderstrandtheater in The Hague start on July 9, 1 p.m.. The ticket sales in the other theatres of the tour haven’t started yet. Keep an eye on the website of the theatre of your choice to receive the latest sales information.

For the opening programme of this season, NDT 1 presents a triple bill featuring works by critically acclaimed choreographers Medhi Walerski and Crystal Pite. Endlessly Free was curated as a response to the times, it is an intimate space that reflects on hope, love, loss and the duality of the self.

about the programme

For this programme, Walerski will create a fresh new work for two dancers. Alongside this world premiere NDT 1 will stage his compelling SOON (2017). SOON started off with a piece of music that was of great significance to the choreographer: “The sheer uniqueness of his voice and the raw, profound poetry of his lyrics kindled a spark that I wanted to express through this piece; four songs, four dancers, echoing Clementine’s vision of life.”
The triple bill is completed with Crystal Pite’s The Other You (2010), a duet she created for her company Kidd Pivot. The work offers a portrait of a man in dialogue with ‘his other’ and lives in the tension between contrasting states.

Performances and live streams

The programs in the first part of the season (September to December 2020) have been adapted to the current measures around COVID-19. All rehearsals and performances are performed according to the set guidelines. We would like to welcome you back in the theatres, albeit in much smaller audience numbers than usual to guarantee the one and a half meter measure for everyone; and online in our digital theatre, via a live stream that you can watch in your own living room. For both options, it is by no means a diluted theatre experience. The dancers and support teams make every effort to make your visit to one of the performances in our theatres or online as special and inspiring as possible. After all, that is what you expect from us!

Tickets for these live streams can be ordered for €15. You will then see the full performance live, including introduction, in your own living room!

In this performance


“A few years ago I went to a Benjamin Clementine concert. From that moment on, I knew I wanted to create a piece to his music. The sheer uniqueness of his voice and the raw, profound poetry of his lyrics kindled a spark that I wanted to express through this piece; four songs, four dancers, echoing Clementine’s vision of life.”  – Medhi Walerski

[Walerski] knows like no other how you can move dancers playfully towards the light.

about SOON
'The Other You' by Crystal Pite. Photo: Joris-Jan Bos.
the other you – crystal pite

The Other You, a duet created by Crystal Pite for Kidd Pivot in 2010, is a portrait of a man in dialogue with his other. The work lives in the tension between contrasting states – conscious and unconscious, civilized and wild, human and animal, puppet and puppeteer, dominance and submission. A familiar tragedy of love, conflict, and loss finds new meaning in the context of the self.
