About the performance
Season 2019-2020 opens with the anniversary programme Kunstkamer to celebrate sixty years of NDT! NDT’s house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot and both associate choreographers, Crystal Pite and Marco Goecke, will create a full-evening programme together in which all dancers from both NDT 1 and NDT 2 share the stage.
Kunstkamer is an extraordinary tribute to the trajectory of the company within the art of dance for the past six decades. Inspired by Albertus Seba’s The Cabinet of Natural Curiosities (1734), the choreographers use the stage to be their own Kunstkamer that presents NDT as its own multifaceted ‘Company of Curiosities’.
After its Dutch premiere, this exceptional programme will travel to London, Madrid, Paris and Baden-Baden.
The performances will be accompanied live by:
Friday, October 4th, the performance is part of an exclusive anniversary celebration event. Higlights of this special evening are: the official launch of the archive of NDT on Google Arts & Culture and the presentation of the anniversary book, in the presence of interesting guests.
On top of that chef Yuri Verbeek will surprise you throughout the evening with sweet and savory snacks inspired by the theme of the choreography. Tickets for this performance (including anniversary celebration, start 7.30 p.m.) are available for € 120,- per ticket.
"The dancers of NDT [...] master Goecke’s language virtuoso and know how to make an event out of moving a shoulder just one millimeter."
