From Here Now Far showcases the crossovers between dance, theatre, art and life

From Here Now Far with NDT 1 is a dance performance in the form of a triptych of hypnotic, cinematic and groundbreaking dance. Two beloved audience favourites Jakie (2023) and La Ruta (2022) will be staged again, and theatre director Simon McBurney and Crystal Pite's latest piece Figures in Extinction 2. 0 will also premiere. The show can be seen at the old Luxor Theatre from Thursday 7 to Saturday 9 March.

Jakie (2023) by choreographers Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar premiered at NDT in May 2023. This virtuoso choreography is accompanied by a soundscape composed by Ori Lichtik. The choreographer duo has a unique movement style deeply rooted in the expression of the body and characterised by pulsating rhythms that create worlds in the past and future. Together, they have created work for companies worldwide.

La Ruta

In La Ruta (2022) by choreographer Gabriela Carrizo, space and time are suspended and you are invited to fabricate your own story from a world of images. In a constant search for crossovers between dance, theatre, art and life, Carrizo stages cinematic works in which dancers are challenged to empathise with characters.

Figures in Extinction 2.0

Nederlands Dans Theater and Complicité present a new work by award-winning theatre director Simon McBurney in collaboration with Crystal Pite, associate choreographer of NDT. The piece is a probing examination of our need for connection in a segregated world. We live in an age of extinction: of animals, languages, of our connection with nature and of ancient knowledge. Is it possible to ever put a name to this loss? What does it mean to have to witness the violence in which we are simultaneously perpetrator and victim? Choreographer Crystal Pite and director Simon McBurney reflect on their ideas, fears and tentative hopes for the era we live in.


Before the performance, you can join the introduction at 19:00. This will take place in the new Luxor Theatre and will last about half an hour. During the introduction, you will get more information about the choreographers and the programme. The spoken language will be in alternating English and Dutch.
