NDT film programme
The Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) has been nominated this year for two Swans. NDT guest choreographers and former dancers Imre and Marne van Opstal have been nominated for a ‘Swan for the most impressive dance production’ for Take Root and NDT 1 dancer Chloé Albaret has been nominated for a ‘Swan for the most impressive achievement in dance’ for her role in Sol León & Paul Lightfoot’s Start to Finish. And then there’s another milestone: Paul Lightfoot will retire as artistic director of the dance company based in The Hague in the summer of 2020 at the end of its 60th anniversary season.
The Statement by Crystal Pite
The Statement (2016) created by Crystal Pite is a one-act performance in which four characters are prisoners of their personal struggle for control and the morality of their actions. Watch the trailer.
Stop-Motion by León & Lightfoot
Sol León and Paul Lightfoot made Stop-Motion (2014) to the melancholy music of Max Richter. Seven dancers portray the confusing emotions that accompany separation. Watch the trailer.
Midnight Raga by Marco Goecke
