- Christopher Bruce's masterpiece, 'Ghost Dances', is possibly the most popular work in Rambert's history. It tells stories of love and compassion, as death ¬†in the form of the iconic 'ghost dancers' interrupts the daily lives of a series of ordinary people. Created as a response to political oppression in South America, it uses imagery from the Day of the Dead and bewitching traditional music to create a moving, intensely human work.
- Exhilarating and poignant - ¬†The Sunday Times
- Ghost Dances is presented in a triple bill, which also features Transfigured Night, created by two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Kim Brandstrup. This dramatic love story is told through intimate duets and spectacular ensemble dancing, amplifying the beauty and romance of the Schoenberg score.
- Symbiosis by Andonis Foniadakis, Resident Choreographer of Greek National Opera Ballet, completes the programme. Symbiosis is a high velocity celebration of the Rambert dancers' skills, with a new score by BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award-nominated composer Ilan Eshkeri.
- Venue: The Lyric Theatre
- Please note -¬†The Friday matinee only includes 2 of the works in the main programme Ghost Dances and Transfigured Night.
