Preview season 2021-2022

The Poetic Body

The Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) season 2021-2022 is titled The Poetic Body.

Expressing ourselves through the language of the body is at the core of NDT’s work. Season 2021-2022 therefore exhibits a diversity in terms of ideas, genders, cultures and approaches that find commonality in pushing the boundaries of poetic, bodily expression. It focuses on new and diverse voices, with particular attention to the female choreographic voice, such as Crystal Pite, Tiffany Tregarthen, Marina Mascarell, and Sharon Eyal, and displays an ambitious appetite for new creations and new artistic approaches by Alan Lucien Øyen, Marcos Morau, Nadav Zelner and Roy Assaf. Additionally, this new season aims to deepen NDT’s relationships with its longtime creators like William Forsythe, Jiri Kylian, Johan Inger, Gabriela Carrizo and Edward Clug.

We can’t wait for you to experience our new season ahead and are very excited to welcome you at one of our performances in 2021-2022!

NDT in Amare

From the 2021-2022 season onwards, Amare will be the new home base of NDT.

“Moving to Amare marks the start of an exciting time for NDT. I look forward to the collaboration and exchange that the building will inspire between the organizations and the community.

I believe art is a conversation. It’s about connection, and one of the best ways to nurture this dialogue is by actively engaging with the people who come to watch and contribute to our performances.

Once we are settled in the building, I’ll be spending time in our beautiful studios first, watching the dancers create with the city in the background. In addition to our studios, I expect the Danstheater to be one of my favorite places in the building; it is made especially for dance and is ultra-modern.”
– Emily Molnar, Artistic Director
