The performances in this programme have taken place in season 2015-2016.
In combining the old and the new, the classical, the modern and the mysterious and seductive, Straight Around shows a combination of pieces that bring the artistic scope of NDT’s dancers and choreographers to the fore. Hans van Manen, with his unprecedented (inter)national allure, danced with NDT from 1960 to 1971 and led the company from 1971 as the artistic director. Romanian choreographer Edward Clug is the director of the Slovene National Theatre Maribor, and after his mutual comfort in season 2014/2015, he will return with a new piece (Handmade). After the success of Sara in 2013, the Israeli duo Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar come back with a new creation for NDT 2 (FEELINGS). Straight Around thus presents two new world premieres for the company.
