World premiere Safe Distance Ballet by Dutch National Ballet x G-Star RAW

Het Nationale Ballet - G-Star RAW - Safe Distance Ballet in The City

G-Star RAW and Dutch National Ballet join forces for a unique collaboration in which the ‘new reality’, social distancing, is visualized in an artistic way. Inspired by the empty theaters, artists without a stage, and the dance of each individual to find their way in the new normal. The socially distanced society is reflected in a special choreography with an impressive 3-meter wide denim tutu as the centrepiece.
