Marco Goecke explores the limits of dance with a distinct, idiosyncratic and innovative style. In February he received the Jiří Kylián Ring for this. ‘In the Dutch Mountains’ – his first full-length work for NDT1 – Goecke looks at the absurdity of life and questions our sense of familiarity and connectedness. He finds inspiration in various sources, including Cees Nooteboom’s novel ‘In de Bergen van Nederland’ and the song ‘In the Dutch Mountains’, a hit in 1987by NITS. Both symbolize the strong artistic bond that the choreographer of German origin feels with the Netherlands: “The way in which my life has always led me back to the Netherlands is remarkable.”
