Dutch Dance Theatre – Jubilee show
June 4, 2019 @ 20:00 - 22:22See their website
Jubilee performance, 30 years Sol León & Paul Lightfoot by Dutch Dance Theatre (Nederlands Dans Theater).
On June 4 the ‘Sol & Paul XXX’ by NDT 1 show will be on stage in Parktheater Eindhoven. In this anniversary performance, NDT celebrates the thirty-year collaboration between NDT’s house choreographers Sol León (Spain) and Paul Lightfoot (England). This hugely productive pair of choreographers has been working together since 1991. In 2002, they were named in-house choreographers at NDT. Until now they have made more than 50 choreographies for the company. Their work has been awarded several times with dance prizes, including the Benois de la Danse, and their creations are performed all over the world.
Unique show in Eindhoven
Sol & Paul XXX premieres on 10 May in the Zuiderstrandtheater in The Hague and is then presented in a limited number of theaters in the Netherlands (The Hague, Tilburg, Nijmegen, Zwolle, Amsterdam, Eindhoven). The fact that the show can be seen on 4 June in Parktheater Eindhoven is therefore quite special.
About the show
NDT’s house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, bring together five monumental works from their oeuvre: Start to Finish (1996), Subject to Change (2003), Shutters Shut (2003), Shoot the Moon (2006), and Same Difference (2007). Each of the five works forms are, in a symbolic, personal or creative way, key moments in the lives and oeuvres of the choreographers. This bundling of artistic highlights for León and Lightfoot therefore shines light on their artistic journey and their creative partnership and is a celebration of their unpredictable and quirky style and inexhaustible work ethic.
