Celebrated as "the most musical, muscular , versatile contemporary dance troupe in Britain" (Daily Mail). Rambert returns with an eclectic programme showcasing the dancers' extraordinary athleticism. Making a much anticipated return after a 13-year absence, Rambert presents Rooster, Christopher Bruce's 0electrifying celebration of the swinging Sixties set to music by the Rolling Stones.
The performance features Four Elements, another classic by dance legend Lucinda Childs. Renowned for her sleek minimalism and for turning the slightest movements into an intricate choreographic masterpiece, Childs' unique style has been described as "Stage heaven" (The Guardian).
Completing the programme is Sounddance, a seminal piece by late master of dance Merce Cunningham and Dutiful Ducks. First created for Michael Clark in 1982, Richard Alston's short, sharp and witty solo is set to a tongue-twisting soundtext by Charles Amirkhanian. With live music by the Rambert Orchestra.
