Nederlands Dans Theater

Power Center for Performing Arts
121 Fletcher Street,
Ann Arbor, MI 48109
Description
Nederlands Dans Theater has forged a path between classical ballet and American modern dance, creating a modern ballet style that is widely admired across the world. Many NDT members have gone on to found other companies in other countries, including Nacho Duato, Ohad Naharin, and Crystal Pite. Pite’s 2016 work, “The Statement,” features two men and two women dealing with a conflict in a boardroom setting, with Jonathan Young (from the 2016-17 season’s Betroffenheit) providing the script/score. “Shoot the Moon” is a heartbreaking view of three different love stories deteriorating behind closed doors in a revolving set of three rooms, set to music by Philip Glass. “Think ballet line and virtuosity fused with modern dance weight and power. Think a commitment to the deepest European art-making traditions with no pandering to pop culture. Above all, think a super-ensemble: dancers who can form a superb corps one moment and perform just as superbly as principals the next.” (Los Angeles Times)
