Nederlands Dans Theater, under the Artistic Direction of Paul Lightfoot, is one of the world's leading contemporary dance companies. In 1978, NDT 2 was founded to develop young talent for the main company. Since then, NDT 2 has developed into an independent company with its very own repertory, now under the artistic direction of Nancy Euverink.
Choreography, Hans Van Manen
Choreography, Edward Clug
Ballet for 4 dancers – Creation on 1999
Choreography, Marco Goecke
The NDT 2 programme offers a rich tapestry of lyrical and experimental work by new and established talent. The young dancers perform Short Cut (1999) by maestro Hans van Manen and Edward Clug's first creation for the company, mutual comfort (2015). The evening also offers a world premiere by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot (Subtle Dust).
Short Cut is a masterpiece from Hans van Manen's 120 ballets and counting oeuvre, all with his unmistakable signature. In mutual comfort Edward Clug lets the dancers perform somewhat nervous and short movements, resulting in a detailed and sharply defined choreography. Since their first creation for NDT 2 in 1989, Sol León and Paul Lightfoot have made over fifty choreographies for NDT. Evening presents another world premiere by the renowned choreographic duo (Subtle Dust).
