Rambert - Dance

An evening with Rambert is always thought provoking. This brilliant, diverse company of dancers invites us to see three very different short pieces that connect directly with the audience.

Since David and Venus, we’ve put the human body on the highest pedestal, shaping and perpetuating an unattainable beauty standard. Eye Candy, originally created for Rambert’s livestream 2021 season by Dutch siblings Imre van Opstal and Marne van Opstal shows the pains and the pleasures of inhabiting the human body.

In Greek mythology Cerberus is the guard dog at the gates of the underworld, preventing the dead from leaving. Ben Duke’s new piece is set on-stage during a contemporary dance performance. A meta dance-comedy and a musing on mortality, complete with funeral couture and live on-stage music from percussionist Romarna Campbell, soprano Rebecca Leggett and classical guitarist George Robinson.

Rambert closes the evening with a treat by Alonzo King, danced for the first time by a UK company. In King’s own words, “everything that exists in nature is seeking to return to its source. The child runs to its parents, and the river seeks the ocean.” Human beings have one thing in common – we want a happiness that is ever fulfilling and never goes stale. Joy is the goal. King’s Following the Subtle Current Upstream is about how to return to joy.

Eye Candy is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Rambert Commissioning Council.

L-E-V - Chapter 3: The Brutal Journey of the Heart
Nine dancers wear full body suits matching their various skin tones, giving the impression that they’re naked, and their bodies entirely covered in delicate black tattoos of foliage and landscapes. They snuggle together in a tight line facing right, hip to hip. The dancer at the front has a red heart shape on his chest and leans back, lips pursed, as if about to kiss the dancer behind him.

A.I.M by Kyle Abraham – Requiem: Fire in the Air of the Earth
A black man with a shaved head wearing a print cotton dress steps away from us. A huge image of a moon, almost as tall as him, floats overhead. The black stage is raked with silvery lines of moonlight, and dim figures lie on the floor in the distance.
