Keep Nederlands Dans Theater alive!

The Dutch Council for Culture is advising Dutch State Secretary for Culture Halbe Zijlstra to cut the annual national subsidies to Nederlands Dans Theater by nearly half. The Council is also proposing downgrading Nederlands Dans Theater to a ‘regional company’. This would be a fatal blow for Nederlands Dans Theater.

For more than fifty years, Nederlands Dans Theater has been the standard bearer for modern dance in the Netherlands and abroad. It serves as the home base for the world’s best dancers and dance makers. It is a company that hasbeen home to worldrenowned choreographers such as Jiří Kylián, Hans van Manen, Paul Lightfoot and Sol León. Join us in opposing the Dutch Council for Culture’s proposal! Sign the petition!

The Dutch Council for Culture is proposing nearly halving the grant to Nederlands Dans Theater and downgrading the dance company to a 'regional dance amenity'.

I support Nederlands Dans Theater in requesting the Dutch State Secretary for Culture Halbe Zijlstra to:

Not agree to the proposed grant cut

Recognise the company's (inter)national status

    The Netherlands Dans Theatre is a major jewel in the crown of the Dutch Council for Culture and of the Netherlands itself. As a dance aficionado in Boston, Massachusetts I have loved their special groundbreaking work. NDT is one of the World leaders in dance culture and beloved internationally.
