Two Pieces for HET

Description

Performed by Het Nationale Ballet (Dutch National Ballet) and choreographed by Hans van Manen to music by Erkki-Sven Tuur and Arvo Part. The ballet originally comprised three parts, but without the first ensemble part Van Manen felt it was stronger, so that only the pas de deux remained: Two Pieces for HET.

Born on July 11, 1932 Hans van Manen became one of the famous Dutch ballet dancers and choreographers. In 1960 he founded the Nederlands Dans Theater and was its art director from 1961 until 1970. From 1974 until 1987 he worked for the Dutch National Ballet. He was awarded by the Deutschen Tanzpreis in 1993, by the Erasmus Prize in 2000 and in 2004 by the Musikpreis der Stadt Duisburg. His work includes more than 90 choreographies.
