The Dutch National Ballet will be performing at the third edition of TEDxAmsterdam, a local edition of the American TED conferences. The performance will take place on Friday 25 November in the Stadsschouwburg.
At the meeting, innovative thinkers give short presentations in which they reveal exciting ideas about Technology, Entertainment & Design. Speakers from all over the world talk about our deepest motives and reflect on how we can influence and improve our minds.
The presentations have grown into a wide platform with branches all over the world. The Dutch National Ballet will be dancing the stage version of the clip made for TED by the company’s creative film maker, Altin Kaftira, and Mathieu Gremillet, soloist with the Dutch national Ballet, of the piece choreographed for the occasion by Dutch National Ballet dancer Ernst Meisner. Alongside the company, the guests include journalist Joris Luyendijk, Professor Barry Schwartz and General of the Royal Netherlands Army Peter van Uhm.
The theme of this third edition is Human Nature. ‘We are so common with being human, yet we know so little about ourselves’, said Jim Stolze, the founder of the Amsterdam edition. The conference can be attended by invitation only. The one-day event has been held in Amsterdam since 2009.
