Welcome to the world of the Netherlands Dans Theater’s in-house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot. During this evening, they take you with them to their artistic universe. You can see the characteristic style of the successful Spanish-British choreographer duo in the humorous “SH-Boom”, and enjoy the powerful theatrical “Same Difference,” set to music by Philip Glass. The closing performance of “Shoot the Moon,” also with the beautiful sounds of Glass, gives you a glimpse into the love lives of several characters.


Performed on December 20, 2012.

SH-BOOM (contains male frontal nudity)
Music by various composers

The humorous SH-Boom, created in 1994, is a playful ballet, set to the music of Vera Lynn and Stan Freberg, in which men in love try to impress women. Since its premiere, the original version of SH-Boom has been adapted and updated several times. The version presented in this program has never been performed in the Netherlands. The ballet was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Production of the Year.

Music by Philip Glass

Shoot the Moon won the VSCD dance prize, ‘the Swan for best dance production 2005-2006’. “Lightfoot León demonstrate how powerfully and subtly a good choreography and good dance can communicate”. That is what the VSCD dance jury wrote when they gave the award to Paul Lightfoot and Sol León for this choreography. In Shoot the Moon you catch glimpses of the love life of three different couples. Revolving walls with striking black-and-white wallpaper create three separate rooms, each containing its own love story. The door to the other room always seems to be open and through the window a new world beckons.

SAME DIFFERENCE (contains female frontal nudity)
Music by Philip Glass

Same Difference (2007) is a theatrical piece in which Sol León and Paul Lightfoot let the dance speak not only figuratively, but literally as well. The dance idiom of the in-house choreographers is given an extra dimension that ‘fits them like a glove’ according to the Algemeen Dagblad. The piece is inspired by the chaotic influence of the ego on human beings, and how simple it is to distance yourself from it. Set on music by Philip Glass, this ballet pulls the spectator into a surrealistic world.
