The hugely productive Paul Lightfoot (1966, Kingsley, Engeland) and Sol León (Córdoba, Spanje) started creating together in 1989. Since then the inseparable duo created more than fifty pieces exclusively for NDT. In 2002 they were appointed house choreographers for the company exclusively. Together they won prestigious awards, such as the Benois de la Danse and the Herald Archangel. In 2018 León & Lightfoot celebrated their 30th anniversary working together.
