SIDE B: ADRIFT
October 5 - December 21, 2017
The work of creators Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier requires enormous physical strength of the NDT 1 dancers. In Adrift existing works The missing door (2013) and The lost room (2015) are complemented by a third work, resulting in a trilogy that underscores NDT's theatrical character.
Together with Side A: Split into One, this programme provides a double performance by NDT 1, in which the company highlights its strong theatrical quality as well as its lyrical dance character.
Made possible by:
"The typical mix of magic, effects, slapstick, and contortion - all honour to the technique and the dancers! - is very bombastic this time. But the suspense is perfect."
- De Volkskrant on The hidden floor
"Overall, the entire piece is still worthy of the previous comparison with the surrealistic and sinister TV series Twin Peaks, and can now also be measured with a movie like Titanic."
- De Volkskrant over Side B: Adrift
Prior to the performances in Zuiderstrandtheater you can attend a free introduction talk.
Get to know more about the company, choreographer, dancers and the performance!

In this programme:
The hidden floor -Franck Chartier (World premiere )
Choreographer Franck Chartier (1967, France) founded the Brussels-based collective Peeping Tom in 2000, together with Gabriela Carrizo. Since then Peeping Tom has become a nationally and internationally acclaimed dance theatre company. In line with Carrizo's work The missing door (2013) Chartier created the critically acclaimed choreography The lost room in 2015. In season 2017-2018 the trilogy will be completed by a third work for the programme Side B: Adrift, which will premiere on October 5, 2017.
The missing door - Gabriela Carrizo
The missing door by Carrizo shows two parallel dimensions where fantasy and reality intertwine. We are witnessing the last minutes of a life, which take place in the twilight zone between life and death. The dying man anxiously tries to find his way through the intricate maze of his thoughts. While soundscapes of everyday sounds turn into lost rhythms, the man performs a lonely battle with time, space and those who are absent.
The lost room - Franck Chartier
In line with Carrizo's work Chartier created The lost room for NDT 1, a choreography that shows how current and future events influence the past, our memory and our ability to remember. In a labyrinth through seemingly endless rooms and hallways the piece tells several stories at once. The piece is timeless, infinite and boundless; a melancholic nostalgia for the future. For The lost room, Chartier received the 2016 Swan award for 'most impressive dance production’.
