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.

In May 2020, Jalet’s debut creation for NDT 1 was canceled due to the corona crisis. With Mist this world premiere finally becomes reality.


Due to the corona measures, performances of Mist in Dutch theaters have been cancelled. Instead, Damien Jalet will create a beautiful film of his creation, filmed by Rahi Rezvani.

The film will be broadcast live exclusively via ndt.nl. More information and broadcast dates will follow, keep yourself informed via this webpage.
