Nederlands Dans Theater 1, 'the flagship', was founded in 1959 and is highly successful all over the world. The dancers are all soloists and are not divided into categories, all have equal status.
The celebrated NDT returns with a revelatory programme featuring two works by Sol Le?n and Paul Lightfoot: Shoot the Moon, an exploration of hidden emotions to a score by Philip Glass, and Stop-Motion, an attempt to capture the past, set to Max Richter's haunting music. There's a battle for control in The Statement, created by Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Crystal Pite with playwright Jonathon Young, the masterminds behind the Olivier Award-winning Betroffenheit. And Marco Goecke takes inspiration from the music of Jeff Buckley in the emotion-driven Woke up Blind.
