Damen signs for another three years as founding partner of the Nederlands Dans Theater
The long-term partnership between the Damen Shipyards Group and the Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) continues. After ten years, DAMEN signs for another three years of founding partnership with the dance company, the company said in its press release.
Kommer and Josine DAMEN have long been admirers of the passionate, international, innovative and dynamic spirit of the Nederlands Dans Theater. These qualities also embody the heart of the Damen Shipyards Group, and therefore their support of the Nederlands Dans Theater was a particularly worthwhile enterprise.
The continuation of this partnership is also of great importance for the NDT. Thanks to the significant support, NDT has the opportunity to continue to fulfil its role as a prominent company at home and abroad. In the heyday of subsidy shortages in art and culture, NDT and many other cultural organizations were compelled to examine and implement new types of cultural entrepreneurship. With this in mind, in 2008 the Damen Shipyards Group became the First Founding Partner of the NDT and thus one of the most significant sponsor of the dance company.
