The Dutch National Ballet is a guest at the Dutch Dance Festival 2013 in Maastricht. On Saturday 5 October, at the gala evening The Dutch Dance Celebration, the company will be dancing Corps by Hans van Manen. Black Mirror, a section from David Dawson’s work Overture (which is nominated for a ‘Zwaan’ award) will be performed on Sunday 6 October, when the 2013 ‘Zwaan’ awards will be presented.
The Dutch Dance Festival honours, stimulates and promotes the development of Dutch dance. Every first weekend in October since 1998, the festival has been presenting an annual selection of high-profile dance productions created in the Netherlands.
At the Maastricht art cinema Lumière, on the afternoon of Wednesday 2 October, the festival will be screening a film of the gala evening with which the company opened the new ballet season on 7 September. So come and enjoy this festive performance from your cinema seat. After the film, there will be a Dutch National Ballet workshop in collaboration with Kumulus, for children aged 8-14. The workshop is only open to children who have a ticket for the film.
