A royal visit

We were very honoured to receive Queen Máxima in our home at Lucent Danstheater on Tuesday, March 16! She visited our company to talk with our Artistic Director Emily Molnar and Managing Director Willemijn Maas about how we are holding up during the corona pandemic, and how we continue to work on maintaining quality, creating interesting online programming and how we keep reaching our audiences.
Due to the corona pandemic, performances in The Netherlands and abroad have not or hardly been possible for a year now. As a result, NDT has looked for new ways to perform and reach the public. Film registrations and live streams of dance productions turned out to be a solution. The experience for both the dancers and the audience is different, but a broader and more international audience can be reached with these online performances. Furthermore, the time that became available through canceled performances is used for research and to invest in the development, creativity and inspiration of the dancers.
