Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is particularly proud to announce that the Stichting Dansersfonds ’79 has announced that the Prize of Merit 2020 will be awarded to NDT 1 dancer Lydia Bustinduy. The Dansersfonds Prizes were initiated in 1979 by his founders Alexandra Radius and Han Ebbelaar and are the longest existing Dutch dance awards.
On November 26, the Dutch government held a press conference in which new measures were announced to combat the spread of the coronavirus. It was announced that all sectors (including the culture sector) must close their doors from 5 PM to 5 AM from November 28 to December 18. This means that we are forced to cancel our performances until December 18.
Damien Jalet’s debut creation, Mist, for NDT 1 could not take place in the 2019-2020 season due to the corona crisis. In the 2020-2021 season, the performances of Mist in Dutch theaters were canceled again due to the corona measures. Therefore, it was decided to make a beautiful film of Damien Jalet’s creation, filmed by Rahi Rezvani. With the film screenings via ndt.nl, his world premiere will finally become reality in January 2022.
