WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Britain's biggest and most exciting touring dance company who often tour two programmes at a time. Dancing to a mixture of musical styles they provide enormously watchable evenings.
This autumn, Ashley Page, former Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet, returns to Rambert with a world premiere. This striking new work is set to music by Aphex Twin and award-winning composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, whose recent work includes the controversial opera about Anna Nicole Smith for the Royal Opera House and UNDANCE at Sadler's Wells. Barak Marshall, one of Israel's most celebrated choreographers, has presented work across the world but rarely in London. Arresting, original and fevered in style, Barak makes his Rambert debut. Completing the programme is The Comedy of Change, originally created to commemorate Darwin Year, and described as "a rare beast: a dance that thinks and imagines on a grand scale" (The Guardian). Running time: 2hrs 20mins (including two 20min interval)
