Subject to Change (2003) is an expressive piece, offering resident choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot the opportunity to highlight their qualities. Six dancers shine in an extremely beautiful ballet filled with emotions, varying from an oppressive duet between a man and a fragile girl to a swirling group dance. The compelling music by Schubert and the gorgeous red carpet unrolling across the stage complement the dance. Subject to Change won the Zwaan Award for Best Dance Production in 2003.
