SIDE A: SPLIT INTO ONE
September 22 - December 16, 2017
Side A: Split into One is an intimate introduction into the 2017-2018 season. It features three world premieres that find the power and beauty in pure movement. NDT treats the audience to choreographical voices all proving that sheer beauty in dance can hide an endless amount of stories.
Together with Side B: Adrift, this programme provides a double performance by NDT 1, in which the company highlights its lyrical dance character as well as its strong theatrical quality.
"[Proof] is yet another work with a clear language and original findings."

In this programme:
World premiere Proof - Edward Clug
Edward Clug will be creating his first piece for NDT 1 that will further establish him as a prominent name in the Dutch dance world. Clug debuted with the company with his creation mutual comfort (2015) for NDT 2. For his work Handman (2016) he received a nomination for the Benoise de la Danse award.
World premiere SOON - Medhi Walerski
“There lies a gentle grandeur in Walerski's gestures, which are modest on the surface and bring a slight glare (…) boosted the Leidsch Dagblad after his premiere of GARDEN (2016), the former NDT dancer’s latest piece for NDT 1. With his premiere for Split into One, he will continue his steady creative journey with the company.
World premiere Sisters - Sol León & Paul Lightfoot
The evening will be completed with a new creation of NDT house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, whose ballets all share the duo’s endless inspiration in exploring human relationships.
