Founded in 1978 for dancers between 17 and 23, Nederlands Dans Theater 2 is one of the world's most popular contemporary dance groups.
After wowing Sadler's Wells audiences with their performances here in 2010 to celebrate NDT?s 50th anniversary, they are back to present an exciting mixed bill including Jiri Kylian's award-winning Gods and Dogs, and NDT2 Associate Artist Alexander Ekman's Cacti.
Gods and Dogs is Jiri Kylian's 100th choreography for Nederlands Dans Theater. First performed in 2008 it has been described as 'a work of rare beauty' (Dance Europe) that explores the border between sanity and insanity.
At just 26 years old, Alexander Ekman is a big name on the European dance scene - his works are known for their clever ideas, fast-paced choreography and dry wit. A former dancer with NDT2 and Cullberg Ballet, he is now a highly-regarded choreographer.
The final work in the triple bill will be Paul Lightfoot's Passe-Partout.
