Short & Sweet: Nederlands Dans Theater

As an early birthday present I was treated to a performance by the Nederlands Dans Theater 2 that had me completely spellbound. The evening included three 30 minute pieces: a strange interpersonal drama, a meditation on the edge of sanity and a charming, self-aware extravaganza. Motion, emotion, seduction, humor, the human body, and an intimate wrestle with personal demons — I can’t think of a better way to mark the beginning of a new year.
