The performances in this programme have taken place in season 2017-2018.
The NDT 2 programme Sum Thoughts offers a rich tapestry of lyrical and experimental work by new and established talent. The young dancers perform Short Cut (1999) by maestro Hans van Manen and Edward Clug’s first creation for the company, mutual comfort (2015). Former NDT dancer Marina Mascarell makes her first creation for the company (A hefty flood), and the evening also offers a world premiere by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot (Subtle Dust).
Short Cut is a masterpiece from Hans van Manen’s 120 ballets and counting oeuvre, all with his unmistakable signature. In mutual comfort Edward Clug lets the dancers perform somewhat nervous and short movements, resulting in a detailed and sharply defined choreography. Poetic and imaginative Marina Mascarell is able to translate her social commitment through dance. As a choreographer Mascarell has been working with Korzo productions for the past six years. Since their first creation for NDT 2 in 1989, Sol León and Paul Lightfoot have made over fifty choreographies for NDT. Sum Thoughts presents another world premiere by the renowned choreographic duo (Subtle Dust).
