Determined not to be defeated by Covid-19 and its attendant lockdowns, Rambert has created a live-streaming platform, Rambert Home Studio, to bring live dance into our homes. Its first offering, Draw From Within, streamed last September, was hugely successful. Now Rambert is creating and live-streaming brand-new works for both its companies – main ensemble and the junior Rambert2.
Here's a taster of what's coming our way:
All the programmes are created specifically for the screen, using ambitious cinematography and inventive performance and technological approaches, something which enormously enhances the viewing experience.
And all are live-streamed, which means whichever performance you choose to watch is happening and being streamed in real time, and you won't have the option to view a recording at another time – just like going to the theatre, in fact.
This year's programme starts with Rooms, by the Norwegian choreographer and film/theatre director, Jo Strømgren, as follows:
– Thursday 8 April at 12pm
– Friday 9 April at 8pm
– Saturday 10 April at 8pm
Typically far-reaching, Rooms involves 17 dancers who will embody 100 characters in 36 scenes. Inspired by the very human instinct to look into the homes of perfect strangers as we walk or ride by, Rooms is a dance-theatre-film work that invites us into a variety of different worlds, where we follow people as they try to live their lives and navigate all manner of obstacles.
It's sometimes surreal and humorous, sometimes a little sad… just like real life, in fact.
For its summer offering, Rambert will present a remake of Rouge, the first piece created for the company by the French choreographer Marion Motin, also known for her work with Christine and the Queens and Dua Lipa. Rouge will be part of a double bill with a new work from the siblings Marne Van Opstal and Imre Van Opstal, which we will preview in more detail nearer the time.
For the autumn, Rambert director Benoit Swan Pouffer authors a new work for the young dance graduates of Rambert2. We shall also take a closer look at that in due course.
