The performances in this programme have taken place in season 2017-2018.
The work of creators Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier requires enormous physical strength of the NDT 1 dancers. In Side B: Adrift existing works The missing door (2014) and The lost room (2015) are complemented by a third work (The hidden floor), resulting in a trilogy that underscores NDT’s theatrical character.
The missing door by Carrizo shows two parallel dimensions interweaving fantasy and reality. The work was described by Parool as an “entertaining, highly intelligent mix of suspense and slapstick, superb timing, wild west and horror atmospheres.”
In line with Carrizo’s work Chartier created the critically acclaimed choreography The lost room. The piece is timeless, infinite and boundless at the same time; a melancholic nostalgia for the future. For The lost room, Chartier received the 2016 Swan award for ‘most impressive dance production’.
