About the contemporary ballet double bill

Dutch National Ballet associate artist David Dawson is one of the most sought-after choreographers today. This ticket includes two of his works:

Requiem

A Requiem is usually about lost lives, however, this particular work is more than that: it's for all of us who make the world what it is today. The music is by Gavin Bryars, one of the most famous contemporary composers in the world.

David Dawson: “A Requiem is usually for the lives that have already passed - to remember, but I feel this Requiem is also for all of us now, today - to think. I think a lot about the way we treat and relate to our world, and to each other. But it is not a narrative work, it is inspired by the behaviour of the soul and what is pure about being. It is a Requiem for our time.”

Citizen Nowhere

The second half of the double bill is Citizen Nowhere, which was received with overwhelming enthusiasm when it premiered at the Dutch National Opera in 2017. The ballet is loosely based on The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, as well as recurring events of the present day. It stands for the solitary, stateless refugee.

The music for Citizen Nowhere was composed by the Polish composer Szymon Brzoska.
