The dancers of NDT 1 and NDT 2 organize a unique programme every year: Switch. An evening entirely composed by the dancers, of which the entire revenue will be donated to a charity fund chosen by them. The performance is filled with new choreographies created by the dancers. In addition to the artistic content, the production, fundraising and marketing efforts are also the dancers’ responsibilities.

For Switch ’21, all revenues will be donated to COC Nederland, an organization that strives for the decriminalization of sexual orientation and gender identity and for equal rights, emancipation and social acceptance of LGBT’s in the Netherlands and all over the world. There are two performances per evening for a small audience in Lucent Danstheater.
“Due to COVID-19 our ticket sale revenue will be significantly lower than usual. If you are in the position and would like to help out by raising your ticket price, we kindly ask you to add this amount as a donation. Many thanks for your support!” – Switch Production Team ’21
NDT is looking for new performance dates for Switch ’21.
“I’m so happy to have experienced Switch. I learnt that this is more than an event. It is a culture, with efforts and ideas needed for it to become alive and grow, and a type of artist in and of itself; I believe that besides all the people that are involved in it, Switch creates, researches and expands its own path. Being within the Switch-team showed me just how vital and integral this process is to dance artists who wish to embody more than the physical execution of dance. This opportunity allows us to have a consciousness, to choose, to shape, and to create outside of our daily work life.Switch was and is a magical moment, like a short breath, that shows us and audiences how beautiful it is to share and create.”Kiran Bonnema on behalf of Switch Production Team ‘20
