Nederlands Dans Theater 2
Founded in 1959, Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is one of the world's leading contemporary dance companies and performs worldwide. In 1978, NDT founded a junior division specifically focusing on talent development. Over the course of three years, NDT 2 prepares sixteen classically trained dancers from around the world for NDT 1. Both companies are celebrated as two of the world's most distinctive dance ensembles.
Handman premiered in February 2016 and is the most recent work of the evening. Choreographed by Edward Clug to music by Milko Lazar, it depicts random encounters as they might unfold and multiply on a road between different individuals.
Out of Breath is choreographed by Johan Inger. The piece was created during a difficult time in the choreographer's life when the dramatic birth of his daughter brutally reminded him that life can be extremely fragile from the very start. The set design, a curved wall on stage recalls a sunken ship, and the passionate and spirited music is composed by Jacob ter Veldhuis and violinist Lajko Felix.
In 2007, Sol León and Paul Lightfoot made the atmospheric ballet Sleight of Hand for eight dancers for NDT 2. With this piece, the choreographers showed they were going in a new, more theatrical direction. Using the music of Philip Glass they feed off the hungry maturing spirits of the NDT 2 dancers to create a dark world full of sinister characters and strange perspectives in time and space.
