Not only the Nederlandse Dansdagen is celebrating an anniversary. This year the Dutch dance field is dominated by a number of special jubilees. During Meesterwerken we pay tribute to these ‘Masters of Dutch dance’.
On 11 July 2022, the grand master of Dutch dance, Hans van Manen, will turn 90. The Dutch National Ballet is celebrating this extensively with a festival and a tour through the Netherlands, including a performance during the Nederlandse Dansdagen.
Introdans and Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) celebrate the 75th birthday of Jiří Kylián and bring three of his works to Maastricht. NDT 1 dances Gods and Dogs, Kylián’s 100th choreography for NDT and also awarded with a Swan for best production in 2009. Introdans brings Petite Mort. Scapino Ballet Rotterdam is celebrating the 65th birthday of artistic director Ed Wubbe with a signature piece by this master.
Meesterwerken is the only time of the year when ‘our’ top companies can be admired on one stage. A unique moment not to be missed!
