Dutch National Opera & Ballet present
Music in the creative process
NDT brings a triple bill of four choreographic masterminds whose choice of music is as important as the stories they tell through their respective dance languages.
In these often unpredictable marriages of movement and sound, associate choreographer Marco Goecke is known for his eclectic choices of music that always bring forth the most unexpected symbioses of music and movement. For Saisonnier Goecke will present a new creation.
We have come to know Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter as a creator of powerful pieces that leave a lasting impression. For his new piece, Shechter will compose the musical score himself.
The evening concludes with Sol León and Paul Lightfoot’s Singulière Odyssée (2017) that the choreographic duo created to Exiles by Max Richter. The world renowned composer created this music especially for this piece.
