The performances in this programme have taken place in season 2016-2017.
In light of the Hieronymus Bosch year that marks the 500th anniversary of the medieval painter’s death, this NDT 2 programme offers a tryptic of ballets that are inspired by Bosch’s art and extensive use of symbolism.
Giving a creative opportunity to a young new voice, chorographer Jiří Pokorný is invited to create a piece for the second company (Humpback Runner). In his career so far, Pokorný has already become known for creating elaborate dream worlds. The programme will also show Some Other Time (2014) by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot with black decor pieces seemingly floating across the stage. Out of Breath (2002) by guest choreographer Johan Inger concludes the evening with a strong symbolic piece centered around a curved white wall as a fortress arising from the ground.
This programme is a co-production with Stichting Jheronimus Bosch 500.
