Dance Consortium presents NDT2
The dancers of NDT 2 are back to impress. One of the world’s leading dance companies and huge favourites with UK audiences, Nederlands Dans Theater possess a winning combination of balletic grace and virtuosic skill with fearless athleticism, passion and personality.
For their highly anticipated return to the UK, NDT 2 will perform works by celebrated international choreographers: Marco Goecke, Hans van Manen and Johan Inger, featuring two UK premieres.
In his very personal and moving piece about the fragility of life and love, Goecke’s The Big Crying, with songs by Tori Amos, energises the fiery power of 18 outstanding dancers to embrace a celebration of life. Then Van Manen’s exquisite quartet, Simple Things, featuring Haydn’s Piano Trio No. 28 in E-major, presents a master class in simplicity.
Finally, Johan Inger’s vibrant IMPASSE bursts onto the stage with the joyful music of French Lebanese jazz trumpeter and composer Ibrahim Maalouf, as he explores the strength of togetherness over isolation in our world today.

To the left, two dancers leave a blurred image of flying limbs and brown fabric. To the right, there are two dancers in brown translucent tunics: a woman kneels in the soil, leaning against the central wall. A man stands behind, knees soft as he lunges to the right.
