Dossier | Costume atelier
A dancer’s costume requires special attention. How the fabric moves, the flexibility of the cut and even how the material reacts to a sweaty, dancing body. In February 2020, a month before the world went into lockdown, NDT was in the middle of preparing for the full-evening program Sometimes, I Wonder, which presented a triptych of works by Jiří Kylián. In light of that performance, the head of the NDT costume department, Yolanda Klompstra, was interviewed for Nederland Bruist, in which she offers a rare glimpse into the world of the NDT costume department. Through this article, you will get an impression of the daily work at the costume atelier, where hard work is also being done on the upcoming NDT 2 performance The play between, which will premiere on 4 November!
