national opera & ballet
Double-bill by David Dawson
Dutch National Ballet associate artist David Dawson is one of the most-sought after choreographers today. This season includes two works by this British artist: the world première of Requiem and his recent hit Citizen Nowhere.
"It is a Requiem for our time”
Requiem will be more than a lamento for lost lives, it's for all of us who make the world what it is today.
David Dawson: “A Requiem is usually for the lives that have already passed - to remember, but I feel this Requiem is also for all of us now, today - to think. I think a lot about the way we treat and relate to our world, and to each other. But it is not a narrative work, it is inspired by the behaviour of the soul and what is pure about being. It is a Requiem for our time.”
