Johan Inger has created a new work, IMPASSE, with a style so familiar to him, varying from comic and theatrical to earthly and organic. Standalone also presents two works by Ohad Naharin: Black Milk, originally for five women, but nowadays danced by five men. George & Zalman, a manifesto about Naharin's perception of humanity, is danced by five female dancers. Finally, Postscript by resident choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot is set to music by Philip Glass. Emotional, poetic pieces in the form of a pas de trois and two duets.
NDT supports the fight against muscle diseases
During the Dutch tour of Standalone, NDT takes up the fight against muscle diseases with "dance against muscle diseases". Dancing symbolizes the ultimate freedom of movement: a freedom that is not self-evident for people with muscular disease. Yet there is one clear agreement: perseverance. Dancers train intensively every day to keep their muscles in top condition, while people with muscular disease demand the utmost of their bodies every day. At the invitation of the Princes Beatrix Spierfonds and Holland Dance Festival, NDT, with the Dutch tour of Standalone, therefore calls attention to the mission of the Princes Beatrix Spierfonds: to eliminate all muscle diseases! The face of the collaboration are 17-year-old Nynke Mentink, who thanks to a medicine for her muscle disease can function well and can even dance, and Toon Lobach, professional dancer at NDT 2. Watch the video here, in which Nynke visits the studios from NDT.
There are around 600 muscle diseases for which there is no treatment yet. That is why the Princess Beatrix Spierfonds finances scientific research into (the healing of) muscle diseases. In addition, it desperately needs your support. Will you help? This can be done by making a donation to the collector on the evening of the performance or via the digital donation form.
