Lightness week 6 with Junior Company of the Dutch National Ballet

The Junior Company is a collective of young dance talents from the Dutch National Ballet. During 'Dance Laboratory' 4 different choreographers are invited to create one unique piece per day, inspired by the theme 'Lightness'. During the day, the public rehearsals open up a unique insight in the creative processes of the choreographers. At night you will see their creations come to life in the final performance.

What does that even mean to create a choreography? And is it possible to do so in just one single day? Choreographers Michele Rizzo, Daniel Cooke, Milena Sidorova and Ederson Rodriques Xavier take on this challenge.

Around the common theme of “lightness”, the Junior Company of the Dutch National Ballet wants to show you that the creation of a dance piece can happen in very different ways. With four different makers, four different creative processes and 12 dancers. Resulting in the creation one completely new piece each day.
