SNDO – Graduation Performances
June 8, 2019 — 19:00
Ahmed El Gendy, Emile Lagarde, Stina Fors
The graduating year of SNDO presents their final works in June 2019 across two venues – ISO Amsterdam and Frascati Theater.The 4th year students of the SNDO – School for New Dance Development graduate by creating two works next to writing a thesis and completing their internship. Public programs take place in venues outside the school providing the students with professional working conditions and the artistic context.
Parallel to the student’s individual creation processes runs a collaboration with the Graphic Design department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. This initiative originated in 2017 and it is with great pleasure that the alliance continues since then. Students of both educations receive an applied design assignment to work together in developing visibility material for the graduation show.
This year’s SNDO graduates are Elisabeth Raymond, Ahmed El Gendy, Emile Lagarde, Netti Nüganen, Alexey Shkolnik, Diego Oliveira, Mami Kang, Raoni Saleh and Stina Fors.
The program is made possible in collaboration with our venue partner ISO Amsterdam, which is hosting this year’s performances alongside Frascati Amsterdam.

The SNDO—School for New Dance Development —offers a full time four-year professional education course leading to a Bachelor’s degree in Art – Choreography. The school was founded in 1975 as an attempt to find new directions for dance next to the existing forms and styles that dominated the field. After forty years, the SNDO remains inquisitive, open minded, and in the foreground of progressive developments in the fields of dance and performance. In the curriculum, the school establishes the conditions from which the creativity of the student can emerge. Reflection on the specific qualities of dance and performance as art forms is developed, and awareness of the body and the artistic, social and political implications of working with it take precedence.
