The lost room wins 'Swan Most Impressive Dance Production 2016'!

Franck Chartier's The lost room in collaboration with Nederlands Dans Theater - NDT1 has won the 'Swan Most Impressive Dance Production 2016'.
Netherlands' most prestigious dance awards, the 'Zwanen' (Swans), were awarded on 7 October, during the Nederlandse Dansdagen (Days of the Dutch Dance) in Maastricht.

About The Lost Room the jury said respectively : "With The lost room Franck Chartier creates a magical realism, surreal and absurd oppressive work that opens a new world for the NDT and its audience. Chartier uses plenty of special effects, pours suspense and (macabre) humor into one barrel and turns you over with a sublime and overthrowing fragile duet."

Bravo to everyone involved in this production!
