about the programme

Souls made apparent brings some of the most technically challenging and theatrically demanding NDT creators together in one programme: besides a world premiere by associate choreographer Marco Goecke, the young dancers of NDT will present 27’52’’ by maestro Jiří Kylián.

This piece takes the viewer along for a game of seeking and being sought, of holding and being held, pulling and pushing, a game in which the dancer must ultimately exit the stage solo. The title itself represents the length of the piece, 27 minutes and 52 seconds, and refers to the birth date of former dancer and NDT-icon Gerald Tibbs (20-07-1952) to whom the work is dedicated.

Marco Goecke, whose work was frequently presented by the company since 2013, will work on a new creation with NDT 2. Goecke’s staccato and unique movement language makes him one of the world’s most wanted choreographers.

In this performance

Jiří Kylián – 27’52” 

Jiří Kylián’s 27’52” takes the viewer along for a game of seeking and being sought, of holding and being held, pulling and pushing, a game in which the dancer must ultimately exit the stage solo. Kylián is often very focused on the use of time and space in dance, and this piece pays particular attention to this concept. The title itself represents the length of the piece- 27 minutes and 52 seconds. 27’52” was developed through a unique collaboration between choreographer and composer, as German composer Dirk Haubrich created the music specifically for this piece. The music, like Kylián’s choreography, encompasses diverse styles, inspired by a wide array of legendary composers such as the 19th century Austrian, Gustav Mahler, and is presented alongside a recording of text spoken in a variety of languages.

27'52" - Jiří Kylián (NDT 2 | Souls made apparent)

27’52″ remains unmistakably Kylián, full of whimsical, dazzling detail, lovely en profils and deeply moving partner work.

Marco Goecke – World premiere

In 2013 Marco Goecke (Germany) joined NDT as an associate choreographer. For the company he created, among others, Thin Skin (2015), Woke up Blind (2016), Wir sagen uns Dunkes (2017), Walk the Demon (2018) and Kunstkamer (2019). His Midnight Raga (2017) earned him the Zwaan for ‘most impressive dance production’. As of season 2019-2020 Goecke leads the ballet direction at State Opera Hannover.

The performance dates and locations of this programme are subject to change. Season 2020-2021 is quite extraordinary as a result of the developments regarding COVID-19. Our dancers and the rest of the organization always try to adapt as well as possible to the continuously changing situation. We hope that our programme as presented here can continue unchanged. But if the corona measures are tightened up in the second half of the season, it is possible that performances unfortunately will be canceled again. We hope for your understanding and flexibility.
The start of ticket sales for this programme is different for each theater: a number of theaters is currently on sale, but this does not apply to all venues.
We advise you to keep an eye on the announcements from NDT and the relevant theater.
