Nederlands Dans Theater 2 will kick off its 2019 U.S. tour with a program of four works at New York City Center, running January 16 – 19, 2019. The program has been revised and will now feature: A New York premiere and a repertoire favorite by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, and American premieres by associate choreographer Marco Goecke and Edward Clug.
Nederlands Dans Theater, under the Artistic Direction of Paul Lightfoot, is one of the world’s leading contemporary dance companies. In 1978, NDT 2 was founded to develop young talent for the main company. Since then, NDT 2 has developed into an independent company with its very own repertory, now under the artistic direction of Nancy Euverink. Following the success of NDT’s 2016 engagement at City Center, NDT 2 will kick-off their US tour with an exciting program of established and new pieces.
“New Yorkers were incredibly welcoming and enthusiastic during our 2016 City Center engagement, and we are thrilled to return to New York to launch our 2019 U.S. tour,” said Paul Lightfoot. “These four dances will showcase the brilliance, youth and passion of our exciting NDT2 dancers.”
