“So much commitment and energy that no one could doubt that dance is in their blood” THE TIMES, APRIL 2016
In 2016, NYDC premiered a new work by the critically acclaimed Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and NYDC 2015-16 Guest Artistic Director Michael Keegan-Dolan, award-winning Founder and Artistic Director of the former Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre.
With In – Nocentes, Guest Artistic Director Keegan-Dolan pays homage to young people’s daring, openness to life and unadulterated enjoyment of it, free of all the questioning and risk-aversion normally triggered in adults by experience. His admiration for the powerful nature of youth’s state of innocence is reflected in a choreographic language that emphasises the young dancers’ spontaneity and raw energy, as well as their differing individual styles.
I have never been in a rehearsal room so full of diverse experience and energy
