Damien Jalet world premiere

The creation Mist for the dancers of NDT 1 presents the debut of the Belgian-French choreographer Damien Jalet with the company. The critically acclaimed works by Jalet are often visual stunning, kinetic and thought provoking.

Jalet’s debut creation, Mist, for NDT 1 could not take place in the 2019-2020 season due to the corona crisis. In the 2020-2021 season, the performances of Mist in Dutch theaters were canceled again due to the corona measures.

Therefore, it was decided to make a beautiful film of Damien Jalet’s creation, filmed by Rahi Rezvani. With the film screenings via ndt.nl, his world premiere will finally become reality in January 2022.


The film will be broadcast live exclusively via ndt.nl on January 6, 7 and 8 2021. More information about the film and ticket sales will follow, keep yourself informed via this webpage.
