Jir Kylin is one artistic director who isn't complaining. Nederlands Dans Theater, which he has masterminded since 1975, has grown so large that he now has three deputies supervising the three branches of the company. In addition to the main company the NDT squad fields a useful team of veterans (NDT3, which visits the Edinburgh Festival this summer) and an under- 21 side, NDT2, which makes its first British tour this summer with work by Kylin, Hans Van Manen and others.
The company's repertoire tends to divide the critics, but all are unanimous in their breathless admiration of the dancers he produces. Lean, handsome and super-fit, it would be a privilege to watch them running for a bus.
