NDTV: keep on watching dance

These are difficult times for everybody. Performances and educational dance activities have been cancelled, unfortunately. But we are busy creating (digital) alternatives so we can keep offering you our art!

So we started NDTV, an online service with exciting dance related video content, like the full ballets, filmed by  Mezzo and La Belle Tele, and a series of interviews with choreographers, that are connected with NDT . See which ballets  and other videos we offer, below on this page.

From May 29: Interview with Marco Goecke

Marco Goecke is a mastermind. An idiosyncratic creator who follows and breaks his own rules while always creating new ones in the process. His movements are sometimes described as ‘feverish’ or ‘staccato’, but in reality it’s hard to capture what labels his particular vocabulary. On stage, lights are often dimmed, music tends to be loud, and dancers’ emotions reach a boiling point underneath a fragile surface, supported by increasingly intense breathing patterns. The interview opens with images of the NDT 2 piece Midnight Raga, which premiered a few days before the taping of this interview on March 17, 2017 and later was awarded with the Netherlands’ most prestigious dance award, a Zwaan (Swan) for best dance production. Watch and enjoy this interview in which we see Goecke at work, and hear him talk about how his style sometimes gets in his way, and why his relatively short dance career has been conducive to his work as a choreographer.

The interview is held in Dutch and German with Dutch subtitles.

Rarely does the audience get an intimate look at the work and think process of great choreographers. What happens in a studio? How are certain choices made? What is the artistic process between choreographer and dancer, and between dancer and music? The program Podium Dans is dedicated to uncovering these apparent mysteries. In a new series on NDTV we show a series of interviews with the most famous makers of Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT), made in recent years by Manon Lichtveld and Bas Westerhof (Beath The Dutch Films) for NPO Cultura. Never before has the public been given access to the artistic minds behind the most memorable creations of the company.

Keep in touch!

Keeping in touch is now more valuable than ever. In this changing world, you can experience NDT in different ways: on social media and via NDTV. The reactions people give to all our online activities are heartwarming and give us confidence for the future to come.
