Works by Goecke and Kylián.

NDT2  presents Souls Made Apparent, live streams consisting  of 27’52” by Jiří Kylián and a world premiere by Marco Goecke. The performances from the Zuiderstrandtheater in The Hague can be followed exclusively on ndt.nl on 18th – 20th March.

After the much watched and enthusiastically reviewed livestreams of Endlessly Free (NDT 1), Dare to Say (NDT 2), I wonder where the dreams I don’t remember go (NDT 1) and Shadow’s Whispers (NDT 1), Nederlands Dans Theater presents in March the live streams of Souls Made Apparent by NDT 2. The program brings together two of the most technically and theatrically challenging NDT makers. In addition to a world premiere by associate choreographer Marco Goecke, the young dancers of NDT 2 will present the work 27’52” by master choreographer Jiří Kylián.

27’52” (2002) takes you into a game of searching and being sought, holding and being held, pulling and pushing. A game in which the dancer eventually has to leave the stage alone. The title refers to the length of the work, 27 minutes and 52 seconds, as well as to the date of birth of the NDT icon to whom the work is dedicated, Gerald Tibbs (20th July 1952).

Marco Goecke is one of the world’s most sought-after choreographers with his peculiar, unique movement language. For NDT, the associate choreographer has previously created acclaimed and award-winning works such as Thin Skin, Midnight Raga, Wir sagen uns Dunkles and Kunstkamer, together with Crystal Pite, Paul Lightfoot and Sol León. Goecke creates a new work for Souls Made Apparent.
