Chuck Jones

Working at NDT has provided me with unique opportunities and experiences. I’ve traveled the world and performed in historical venues. My favorite memories with NDT so far have been the opportunities to create with world-renowned choreographers. Two of my favorite creation experiences were with Hofesh Shechter in Vladimir and with Marco Goecke in Kunstkamer.

Working with these choreographers has been gratifying and joyous; these experiences fulfilled professional goals of mine. In each creation there was a strong sense of collaboration and trust between me, the dancer, and them, the choreographer. These experiences have shaped me to become the artist that I am today. – Chuck Jones
