Creation NDT 2017 / Adrift

2017 - Franck Chartier & Nederlands Dans Theater

Franck Chartier and the ensemble of NDTI collaborate in 2017 once again to create a new production. They are completing the triptych that started with The missing door (Gabriela Carrizo, 2013) followed by The lost room (Franck Chartier, 2015).

This new short creation will address some of the themes that were already present in the previous two productions: the memory, the disruption of time. The characters find themselves in a public space, maybe a restaurant, taken over by nature. They are experiencing their final moments as the water slowly starts to rise. Holding on to their last hope, they try to survive and find a way out, not only physically but also mentally.

The new creation will premiere on October, 5th 2017 in the Zuiderstrandtheater in The Hague (NL). The missing door, The lost room and the new piece will be presented in a triple bill program entitled Adrift. The world première will be followed by a tour throughout The Netherlands.

In 2016, The lost room won a ‘Swan most impressive dance production of 2016’. The Netherlands’ most prestigious dance award, the Zwanen (Swans), are awarded each year in October during the Festival of the Dutch Dance in Maastricht.
