From Here Now Far
With From Here Now Far Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) presents a series of artistic heavy weights within the dance and theatre world.
Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) and Complicité present Figures in Extinction [2.0] But then you come to the humans, a new work by award winning theatre director Simon McBurney, in collaboration with NDT-associate choreographer Crystal Pite. This is the second work in a triptych of collaborations between these world-renowned artists that are presented between 2022 and 2025, and the first time McBurney will be creating a work for a dance company exclusively. Steering away from linear stories, McBurney overlaps narratives, past and present, fact and fiction, allowing them to communicate with each other. 'I'm naturally attracted to something I don't understand, because when you try to deal with that, it opens a door into another world', says McBurney.
For this program we are delighted to bring back Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar to theatres. The choreographic duo have come to embody a unique style of movement that is deeply rooted in the expression of the body. Their work is characterized by pulsing and hypnotic rhythms that tap into worlds that seemingly co-exist far into the future and deep into the past. Together they have created works for multiple companies worldwide and founded their own company L-E-V in 2013.
In a constant search for crossovers between dance, theatre, art and life, Gabriela Carrizo stages powerful, cinematic works in which performers are challenged to delve into characters, requiring a high vulnerability of expression. In La Ruta (2022), Carrizo’s second work for NDT, space and time are suspended, while the viewer is invited to interpret their own narrative within a world of images.
