8 februari - 11 maart 2016
In line with NDT’s site-specific works School of Thought and Spiritwalking, NDT undertakes another project that defies the traditional theatre experience.
The Hole, Ohad Naharin’s masterpiece from 2013 is performed twice per evening, each performance showing a shift in the prominent presence of either the male or the female dancers (or a mixed cast).

A co-production with schrit_tmacher just dance/Parkstad Limburg Theater.

Made possible by: Kunst en Israël |
Stichting Will en Rita Jaeger fonds.

"Naharin has managed to create an inspiring space in which he stirs up the imagination with remarkable ingenuity. That makes The Hole a sensational, unforgettable experience."

- Leids Dagblad

"A stubborn paradise with a bang effect."

Ohad Naharin

In this programme:

The Hole - Ohad Naharin
Batsheva Dance Company Choreographer & Artistic Director Ohad Naharin has been hailed as one of the world’s preeminent contemporary choreographers. As Artistic Director of Batsheva Dance Company since 1990, he has guided the company with an adventurous artistic vision and reinvigorated its repertory with his captivating choreography.

Naharin created an intimate setting in which the audience, limited in number, sits on stage and surrounds the dance floor. An ingenious use of the space creates a grand experience for the audience.
Naharin has been connected to NDT for over 30 years and has created for the company several times. This return with The Hole marks a new place in NDT’s relationship with this master of modern dance.
