About the performance
Initially brought to life to feed the first company with young talent, NDT 2 has grown into its full autonomous potential with its own repertoire over the years. Standalone celebrates makers that adhere to this level of independence.
Johan Inger has created numerous choreographies for the company. For Standalone, Inger will present a world premiere. NDT 2 also presents two creations by the world-renowned choreographer Ohad Naharin. Black Milk (1985), was originally created for five women but is now danced by five men. George & Zalman (2006) will be performed by five female dancers. Lastly, Standalone offers Postscript (2005) by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot. Postscript is set to music by Philip Glass which will be performed live on stage with the dancers.
"Masterly musicality, excellent efficient design and a lyrical as well as a comic like dance language"
