Sadler’s Wells & BBC Arts present Dancing Nation

Rouge (excerpt)
Choreography: Marion Motin

Marion Motin’s hip hop-influenced style is best known through her work for Christine and the Queens and Dua Lipa’s IDGAF music video.

Rambert’s Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer invited Marion to create her first work for a contemporary company and in 2019 Rouge was premiered at Sadler’s Wells. The result is fresh and bold, with four-to-the floor beats, tight unison bodies and glorious costumes.

When your building is burning in the middle of the night, what do you take with you? How does it help you to keep going?

★★★★ "Rouge is pure escapism as Rambert dancers embody Marion Motin’s hip-hop influenced style. Sweaty and bathed in pink light, they evoke a nightclub-esque atmosphere, as they strut across the stage to pulsating electronic beats"
