Wave | Another Kind of Blue

We live on the waves of our existence, with on the one hand the inner movements between joy and sadness and on the other the cyclical movements of nature.

The Nutcracker & the Mouse King | Nationale Ballet: Wayne Eagling en Toer van Schayk

Dutch National Ballet’s ultimate Christmas production is a festive fairytale, steeped in Dutch traditions for the month of December. There are skating scenes on the canals of Amsterdam, a living room that transforms into a snowy forest and a magic lantern that takes you on a journey to exotic countries. Since its premiere, the ballet has enchanted more than 325,000 children and adults.

Dans voor actrice | tg STAN | Jolente De Keersmaeker

For this production choreographer Jérôme Bel asked actress Jolente de Keersmaeker (tg STAN) to perform pieces from modern dance rather than roles from the theatre repertoire as she would normally do. Jérôme Bel firmly believes that some twentieth century choreographies are as telling and important as the most meaningful theatre scripts.

In a fairytale-like physical show with fourteen young and less young bodies, we free ourselves from our gray kitchens. We open the ball dancing wildly, give you a glimpse into our backstage space, where insecurity, pimples and fear for your naked body are no longer hidden under a beautiful dress.
