Moeder (Mother) - on tour

Moeder (Mother), directed by Gabriela Carrizo, is the second part of a trilogy that started off with Vader (2014) - directed by Franck Chartier - and will close with Kinderen. The world premiere took place at Theater im Pfalzbau (Ludwigshafen, DE) on September 29, 2016. We then brought Moeder to Reggio Emilia (IT), Köln (GE), Zürich (CH) and Oslo (NO), before the Belgian premiere took place November 10, 2016 at KVS in Brussels.

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!
