The lost room nominated for the Zwanen 2016

Franck Chartier's The lost room in collaboration with Nederlands Dans Theater - NDT1 has been nominated for Netherlands' most prestigious dance award, the 'Zwanen' (Swans), as 'most impressive dance production in 2016'. Other nominees are Three by Introdans and Light from Leine Roebana .

About The Lost Room the jury said respectively : "With The lost room Franck Chartier creates a magical realism, surreal and absurd oppressive work that opens a new world for the NDT and its audience. Chartier uses plenty of special effects, pours suspense and (macabre) humor into one barrel and turns you over with a sublime and overthrowing fragile duet."

The 'Zwanen' (Swans) will be awarded on 7 October, during the Nederlandse Dansdagen (Days of the Dutch Dance) in Maastricht.
