Each cohort will stay with the company for one year, which will give them the opportunity to develop by performing the work of exciting contemporary choreographers.
So, the programme for their London debut at Sadler’s Wells includes works by Rafael Bonachela, Sharon Eyal and Benoit Swan Pouffer.
The Spanish choreographer Rafael Bonachela is currently the Artistic Director of the Sydney Dance Company. Formerly a dancer with Rambert, he has choreographed a large number of contemporary dance pieces as well as pop videos, namely for Kylie Minogue. Rambert2 are dancing his E2 7SD, an award-winning intensely physical and emotional duet. The title, by the way, is the postcode for Hackney Road in London, where the dancers of the work’s first performance lived.
Israeli Sharon Eyal is Sadler’s Wells newest Associate Artist, and is having quite the moment in UK dance, where over the past season we saw her distinctive, highly syncopated work performed by her own company,L-E-V, the National Youth Dance Company and Ballet British Columbia. Rambert2 will dance her 2009 work, Killer Pig.
Originally from France, Benoit Swan Pouffer spent seven years as a principal dancer with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and is currently Guest Artistic Director of both Rambert and Rambert2, as well as an internationally acclaimed choreographer.
As if all this weren’t enticing enough, the main company will join in to give the final performances of a Rambert classic, Christopher Bruce’s homage to the victims of political repression in Latin America, Ghost Dances.
