For Switch ‘18 the NDT 1 and NDT 2 dancers take full control and compile a unique programme of new choreographies created by themselves. In addition to the artistic content, the dancers also manage
the production, fundraising and marketing efforts. The evening’s revenue is donated to a charity fund chosen by the dancers. This year the charity is Instituto Terra. Based in Brazil, this institute works to support the restoration of the ecosystem, the production of Atlantic Forest seedlings, environmental outreach and education, and applied scientific research.
“Being a part of Switch is a great experience for the NDT dancers because it gives us a platform to exercise other skills next to choreographing and dancing, such as producing and organizing. The evening’sproceeds are allocated to a charity of our own chosing which makes the process of creating this unique event even more rewarding. Not only can our art inspire but it can also help the less fortunate in a multitude of ways.” – Chuck Jones (dancer NDT 1)
