Promise by Sedrig Verwoert [behind the scenes] | Dutch National Ballet

In his brand-new work Promise, Sedrig Verwoert wants to emphasise the maturity of the Junior Company talents, rather than their light-heartedness and youthful character. The eight-minute duet is a powerful and very physical dialogue between a male and a female dancer, full of dynamic partnering and pointe work. To music by American jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders and the British composer Floating Points, Verwoert challenges the young dancers to bring out the maturity in themselves and each other, and to search for the balance between freedom and responsibility that is necessary for this.

Choreography – Sedrig Verwoert
