Season 2022-2023

Celebrate the new season with us

Behind the scenes, preparations are in full swing, and we can’t wait to share the 2022-2023 season with you.

This season we present a programme filled with NDT classics created by established makers, to new work by up-and-coming talent; and from groundbreaking expression to powerful sensuality. We hope you will agree, it is a season that invites you to experience a richness of approaches in dance.

Today, more than ever, we need to come together, we need art and the channels of expression it can provoke and inspire in us to examine the world. We look forward to seeing you in the theatre!
