Netherlands Dance Theater II

On Friday night, I went for a performance by the Netherlands Dance Theater II at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford, where I work. Netherlands Dance Theater II (NDT2) is a comtemporary dance company founded in 1978 and presently consists of sixteen dancers between the ages of 17 and 22. NDT2 was originally a training ground for young dancers before they move on to the main company, Netherlands Dance Theater I, but since its conception, it has developed into an internationally recognized company of its own. From the performance I saw, it’s easy to understand why. These publicity photos are from their first dance. There were 3 altogether, all incorporating simple props and costumes but choreographed in very artistic and original ways.

wow, this looks like it was really well made! i love plays and productions with clever choreogrphy, i would have liked to see this! the last play i saw was totally in russian, it was called Uncle Vanya and it had english surtitles, an interesting experience to say the least.

keep up the good work!
