The 27 dancers of Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) once again display their impressive skills in a stunning triptych: Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, alongside William Forsythe, and Imre and Marne van Opstal!

The NDT, which will celebrate its 65th anniversary in 2024, is constantly moving forward with ambitious works by the biggest names on the international scene. Europe’s most elegant and accomplished dance company, directed since 2020 by Canadian Emily Molnar, will dazzle us with this memorable program. One Flat Thing, reproduced is pure Forsythe at his best, a masterful demonstration of perfectly orchestrated chaos, where the virtuosity of the performers rivals the ingenious complexity of the choreography. Astonishing. The duo Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, NDT associate artists whose infectiously energetic works never fail to captivate audiences, have a new creation in store for us. Finally, The Point Being by a talented tandem of former NDT performers, the siblings Imre and Marne van Opstal, will complete this triptych. A must-see.
