In the spotlight: the Junior Company on tour in Indonesia

In the spotlight: the Junior Company on tour in Indonesia

Magazine tags
The Dutch National Ballet Junior Company is performing three times in Indonesia through the invitation of the Erasmus Huis – Dutch cultural center in Jakarta.

The top talents of the Junior Company will be dancing a specially composed programme called Unboxing Ballet with choreographies by Ernst Meisner, George Balanchine, Charlotte Edmonds and Eric Gauthier. Unboxing Ballet combines the three cornerstones of the Dutch National Ballet repertoire: the classical and ever-popular nineteenth-century ballet tradition, highlights of twentieth-century ballet, and exciting creations by choreographers who are blazing new trails around the world. This kaleidoscopic triptych takes you on a virtual journey through the history of ballet, guided by the gifted young dancers of the Junior Company.
