To mark Rambert's 90th anniversary a programme of specially commissioned work from a new generation of dance-makers, explores themes of capitalism, migration, identity, society, and art.
In Whitley's Frames, 12 performers skilfully manipulate 70 interlocking metal bars, forming shapes, structures and spaces to cast their dancing in a new light. Dzierzon's new piece navigates the subject of migration through moving screens and projections, while Hydrargyrum deconstructs ideas related to connection and disconnection, through Okenwa's distinctive, grounded and powerful style.
Music: live orchestra.
