NEDERLANDS DANS THEATER
May 4, 2020
Nederlands DansTheater shows once more why they champion the contemporary field in their
weekly digital series, NDTV. In a musical, yet not overly predictable ballet set to a number of
Bach’s concertos, Subtle Dust, performed by NDT2, is another work of distinction by Paul
Lightfoot and Sol Leon.
Danced by eight dancers in the company, this ballet explores cycles of
duality. The articulation of both movement and emotion show not only their indisputable
technique, but also their commitment to artistry. To so perfectly execute the nuances of their
movement vocabulary, even through a TV screen, is nothing short of magnificent.
