Nederlands Dans Theater live screening - An Evening With Crystal Pite
Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) are the first contemporary dance company to work with Pathé Live who have broadcast live screenings of some of the biggest opera and ballet companies (The Metropolitan Opera, The Bolshoi Ballet) to cinemas around the world.
This Thursday performance of NDT’s An Evening With Crystal Pite at Lucent Danstheater (in The Hague) will be filmed for the big screen using 6 HD cameras and broadcast live to 200 cinemas world-wide, including London’s Odeon, Covent Garden.
Vancouver based choreographer Pite is an Associate Choreographer with NDT and used to dance with William Forsythe’s Ballett Frankfurt She formed her own company, Kidd Pivot in 2001 and has been developing a reputation for thrilling, highly structured movement which also conveys emotion. Her work hasn’t been seen often in the UK (American ballet company Cedar Lake performed one of her pieces in London last year, and in 2009, Kidd Pivot performed in the Debut series at Sadler’s Wells) so this is a great opportunity to see her work.
Runtime: 180 min
An Evening With Crystal Pite is being screened at the Odeon Covent Garden cinema on 7 February 2013 – and other Odeons, including Wimbledon, Manchester and Norwich.
