“When I was in 2011, this high position is accepted, I took me ten years to do,” says Lightfoot in an interview in the Volkskrant. “That seemed to me for the company enough – the group has been built on change and adventure. There are therefore nine. Longer is for me unhealthy. Choreographing and directing are two full-time jobs, which together can resist.”
Lightfoot has been since 1985 at the Dance Theater connected. First as a dancer, later as a choreographer together with Sol Léon. From 2002 Lightfoot and Léon resident choreographer.
