DANCE CONSORTIUM presents
Nederlands Dans Theater
NDT 2’s “young, sexy, superlative” (The Times) dancers are back to impress!
One of the world’s leading dance companies and huge favourites with UK audiences, Nederlands Dans Theater possess a winning combination of balletic grace and virtuosic skill with fearless athleticism, passion and personality.
For their highly anticipated return to the UK, NDT 2 will perform works by celebrated international choreographers: Marco Goeke, Hans Van Manen and Johan Inger, featuring two UK premieres.
In his very personal and moving piece about the fragility of life and love, Goeke’s The Big Crying, with songs by Tori Amos, energises the fiery power of 18 outstanding dancers to embrace a celebration of life.
Van Manen’s exquisite quartet, Simple Things, featuring Hayden’s Piano Trio No. 28 in E-major, is described as ‘pure dance art’, presenting a master class in simplicity.
For the finale, Johan Inger’s vibrant IMPASSE bursts onto the stage with the joyful music of French-Lebanese jazz trumpeter and composer Ibrahim Maalouf, as he explores the strength of togetherness over isolation in our world today.
This is dance at its most sublime level. NDT 2 are not to be missed!
NDT 2 is a distinct phenomenon and phenomenal.
NDT 2 is the tippest of the top. Its dancers are triple A-rated.
A joy to watch. Do not miss them if the tour brings them near you.
Strong, sleek and swift. They make everything look stunning.
Every time NDT 2 hits our stages, the usual superlatives fall flat in speechless admiration at 18 dancers who can handle anything the top-ranking choreographers care to task them with.
