“If you see only one live performance this year… NDT is the one to see.” The New York Times
Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is one of the world’s preeminent dance companies, and its long-awaited return to Ottawa is a highlight of the NAC Dance season. The company’s dancers are renowned for their technical brilliance and versatility who exquisitely embody a wide range of styles. By fostering a unique environment of creation, NDT attracts a guest choreographer list that reads like a who’s who of the international dance scene. This phenomenal triple bill performed by NDT 1 includes The Statement by NDT’s associate choreographer Crystal Pite, VLADIMIR by the inimitable Hofesh Shechter and Singulière Odyssée, by NDT’s award-winning house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot.
This performance is part of the NAC’s week-long focus on the arts and artists of The Netherlands, in recognition of the 75th anniversary of VE Day and the deep and abiding friendship between Canada and the Netherlands.
