Walerski is creating a new work with two dancers, Silent Tides. In addition to Silent Tides, NDT 1 will bring his SOON (2017) to the stage. SOON was inspired by a piece of music that was of great significance to the choreographer: 'A few years ago, I went to a Benjamin Clementine concert. From that moment on I knew I wanted to make a piece to his music', says Walerski. ‘The sheer uniqueness of his voice and the raw, profound poetry of his lyrics ignited a spark that I wanted to express in this piece. Four songs and four dancers following Clementine's vision of life.'
Crystal Pite’s The Other You (2010) completes the triple bill: a duet she created for her company Kidd Pivot. The piece portrays a man who is in dialogue with his ‘other me’. It moves around the field of tension that exists between opposites.
