Nederlands Dans Theater

Choreographies by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot and by Crystal Pite


Tatort, Traumschiff, Tagesschau, oder: Tanzen im Hier und Jetzt.
Die beste niederländische Ballett-Kompanie muss man im Festspielhaus kaum mehr vorstellen, das NDT ist hier ein gern gesehener Gast. Sein Thema ist die Gegenwart: in „The Statement“ etwa ein Wirtschaftsmeeting, bei dem sich die Teilnehmer über den Tisch ziehen lassen – und zwar wortwörtlich. Der tanzende Mensch, der dem Abbild stets näher ist als dem Wort, eignet sich eben gut für kraftvolle Metaphern. So auch in „I shut my eyes in order to see“: Frauen und Männer, die kommen und gehen und ihre Schicksale nur andeuten – kein Thema für einen Roman, dafür für ein Gedicht. Oder für ein Ballett: Dass die Poesie sich eher in der Geste als in der Geschichte verbirgt, ist ein Gedanke, der diese Kompanie bewegt.
