Case brandactivation Samsung

For the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S7 in South Korea, which centered on the quality of the photos that could be taken with the phone, Samsung and NDT worked jointly on a brand activation campaign. During two exciting weeks, the NDT 1 dancers, technicians, and NDT’s former artistic director Paul Lightfoot worked with Samsung South Korea on an exclusive performance, of which dance photos were taken with the new Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone!

Projects

Creation | New creations

Each season, NDT presents eight to ten new creations. Renowned choreographers and relatively unknown creators of dance ensure that the repertoire and the art form remain exciting and new for the dancers as well as to the audience. This way, NDT is of, and continues to offer, immense added value to modern dance on a global level.  By contributing to these new creations, you will become involved in the artistic core of NDT.

Existing repertoire

By sponsoring existing repertoire, each season, your organization can become connected to existing works that return to the program. This is very necessary, because this way, such loved and sometimes costly productions can always continue to be performed. By covering the costs of rehearsal times and renovations or alterations of set pieces, they also help to maintain the high-quality level of the company.

Creation | Youth programming

NDT is currently developing an approachable program for youth, through which it can reach a younger and more diverse audience. The program consists of a yearly event at an ever-changing, unusual location that is attractive to young people. The repertoire performed is changed to suit the location, which creates a different experience of DNT’s artistic dance from the perspective of the dancers as well as the youthful audiences. Furthermore, we organize some peripheral programming based on several existing performances that appeal to this audience. Supporting this project is a wonderful opportunity, as your organization reaches this hard-to-reach target audience, it is cutting edge, and you help NDT to make the project a reality.

Social Seats

For NDT, diversity is an important theme. The positive impact of art on the wellbeing of people makes a major impact on their lives and the community in which they live. Because of this, NDT would like to be able to make its art and performances accessible to those who do not have the financial means to purchase tickets themselves. By being NDT’s partner in this project, your Corporate Responsibility is clearly implemented, and it also has a major impact on the lives of these people and the communities they live in.

International tours

Being a partner of our international tours, your organization will have a significant impact on NDT’s global presence. With over 70 performances worldwide each year, NDT shares its artisanship and talent development programs with people around the world, from Madrid to Melbourne, New York to Hong Kong, and Stuttgart to Singapore. This is a fantastic opportunity to position and connect your organization on a worldwide level to an internationally reputed company. Opportunities to be considered include activities, welcoming your stakeholders, and networking with NDT’s connections in those cities where your organization is active.
