Season 2016 / 2017

Nederlands Dans Theater 1
Sol León et Paul Lightfoot / Crystal Pite

Safe as Houses
Safe as Houses
Rahi Rezvani


After a smash hit in 2014, NDT 1 returns to Chaillot with three pieces. Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot composed the first two. Safe as Houses – based on an ancient Chinese text – brings the dance in and out with a swivelling wall to the music of Bach. In Stop-Motion, the performers explore all the possibilities of movement, slow, broken up or split. Finally, the very in-demand Crystal Pite works with shadows and displays very expressive arm movements in the excellent In the Event.
