    About

    The Second Detail
    Choreography: William Forsythe
    William Forsythe is a towering figure of contemporary global dance. Blending ballet and visual arts, and displaying both abstraction and forceful theatricality, his vision of choreography as an organisational practice has inspired him to produce numerous installations, films, as well as computer-based creations, incorporating the spoken word and experimental music. 
    The Second Detail is simultaneously playful and rigorous, set to an aggressively percussive score by Forsythe’s frequent collaborator, the Dutch composer Thom Willems. Created for the National Ballet of Canada in 1991, the choreography, characterised by the neo-classical symmetry of ensemble formations, is unceasingly challenging. Forsythe plays with tempo, group dynamics and off-axis lines executed at speed.

    World premiere: February 20, 1991, National Ballet of Canada, Toronto

    Handman
    Choreography: Edward Clug
    In 2016 Clug created for Nederlands Dans Theater 2 (NDT 2) the choreography Handman, for which in 2017 he receiveda nomination for the coveted Benois de la danse prize. Edward Clug, currently serving as the artistic director of the Slovene National Theatre in Maribor, gained international acclaim as a choreographer with Radio and Juliet in 2005. A sought-after artist, he has created works for the Nederlands Dans Theater, Ballett Zürich, Royal Ballet of Flanders, Stuttgarter Ballett, Latvian Ballet, Les Grand Ballet Canadiens, Wiener Staatsoper, West Australian Ballet, Companhia Nacional de Bailado in Lisbon, Aalto Ballet Essen, Ballett Augsburg, among others.

    World Premiere: February 18, 2016, Nederlands Dans Theater (Theater aan het Spui, The Hague)

    EDEN | EDEN
    Choreography: Wayne McGregor
    The award-winning British choreographer and stage director Wayne McGregor is internationally renowned for trailblazing innovations in performance, integrating dance, film, visual arts, digital technologies and natural sciences. In Eden|Eden, he focuses on the impact of technology on the aesthetics of the environment and the human body alike. ‘Dolly’, is from the three-act digital video opera Three Tales by Steve Reich and Beryl Korot, where the video component is by Ms. Korot.  Additionally, this work was released by Nonesuch Records in a two-disc DVD/CD package.  It is to be noted that the video component included in this ballet by Wayne McGregor is not from Three Tales. 

    World Premiere: 7 April 2005, Staatstheater Stuttgart, Germany
