NDT2 (Dutch Dance Ensemble) brings with Dare to Say two world premieres by two distinctive makers. Alexander Ekman and Dimo Milev challenge the dancers of the second company by working with different approaches to movement and choreography in their new creations. The guidelines surrounding COVID-19 were the guideline.
Former NDT 2 dancer Alexander Ekman (Sweden, 1984) decided to focus exclusively on choreography after his own dance career. He made his last work for NDT, FIT, for NDT 2 in the 2018-2019 season. Ekman often composes the music and develops the set for his choreographies.
After a brilliant career as a dancer, the choreographer Dimo Milev (Bulgaria, 1976) has developed his own choreographic style in pieces by William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin and Hans van Manen, among others. He previously worked with NDT 2 for Up & Coming Choreographers in 2019. His piece for Dare to Say will be his first creation for NDT’s regular programming.
The evening will be musically accompanied by musicians from the Ballet Orchestra.
