MAGNIFICENT • ICONIC
An icon on the international dance scene, for 60 years Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) has deployed a powerful artistic vision dazzlingly expressed through ambitious choreographic projects. With these three works, NDT not only displays its versatility, but reaffirms its position as a world leader in contemporary dance. In The Statement, NDT’s associate choreographer Crystal Pite plunges into the heart of political conflict to probe individual and collective power struggles, while in VLADIMIR, Hofesh Shechter uses movement as precise as it is intense to capture the agitation of youth. Finally, NDT’s house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot join forces to present Singulière Odyssée, a reflection on travel and transformation, portrayed in neoclassical lines drawn to perfection by the dancers. Triple proof that NDT combines intensity and virtuosity as brilliantly as ever!
