COVID-19 brought about a great deal for NDT. Performances were cancelled and tours of the Netherlands and abroad were halted. In addition to the performances the companies presented via livestreams, NDT used the period for experimentation, movement research and reaching new audiences outside the traditional theatre space. Amongst others, choreographer Michael Schumacher was invited to conduct research into improvisation and instant composition over several sessions, in collaboration with the dancers of NDT 1. On Thursday 24 June the results of these sessions will come together at the Kunstmuseum Den Haag with the premiere of Revisitation, a scored improvisation by Schumacher. There will be three presentations at 13:00, 14:00, and 15:00.
The NDT 2 programme Illuminate: a triptych with new works by Micaela Taylor and Jermaine Spivey, as well as Bedtime story by Nadav Zelner.
To be seen until December 21 in various Dutch theaters!
A Forsythe Evening
NDT 1 performs A Forsythe Evening, three works by the choreographer William Forsythe who innovated the international dance world. Experience this programme in Dutch theatres from December 7 to 22 .
