Dancer with NDT 1 and choreographer
Lea Ved joined NDT 1 in August 2018, after dancing with the RUBBERBANDance group in Canada and the Royal Swedish Ballet for several years. Besides being a professional dancer, Lea has developed a career as a choreographer.
In November 2020, Korzo and NDT present Here we live and now to celebrate the wealth of dance talent in the city of The Hague. For this project, Lea is amongst the upcoming choreographers that are invited to create a short performance and present this on the Korzo stage. In this interview, the American dancer and creator talks about how the two creative expressions of being a dancer and choreographer enrich each other, about her process of working on a new piece from scratch, and how to dance with gut presence and trust, even amidst heavy uncertainties.
