These renowned dance awards will be presented at the Nederlandse Dansdagen Gala on Friday 4 October at 20.00 at Theater aan het Vrijthof in Maastricht.  

All nominated companies, choreographers and dancers have delivered exceptional artistic quality in the past 2023-2024 season, according to the juries.  

In the "most impressive dance achievement 2024" category, Tarek Rammo and Matilde Tommasini are two of the three nominees. Both studied at Codarts in the past and have built an impressive career after graduating. 

Tarek Rammo graduated from Codarts Circus Arts in 2011 and has been nominated for his role in Tipping Point (Pia Meuthen/Panama Pictures)

The jury on Tarek: Tarek Rammo couples fabulous physical skills with a great sense of theatre. In Tipping Point, where the world swings and sways, he focuses on the subtlety of what he narrates with a layered, poetically charged body language that balances between acrobatics and dance.

Matilde Tommasini graduated from our Bachelor of Dance programme in 2017 and has been nominated for her role in Khôra (Astrid Boons/Korzo).

The jury on Matilde: The individuality as well as the ability to be fluid of the charismatic dancer Matilde Tommasini leads in Khôra by Astrid Boons to a range of new physical expression possibilities. In this work, Matilde is a force of nature uninhibitedly exploring the extremes of the body.

We congratulate all nominees on their nominations and wish them the best of luck!
