Rambert - Ghost Dances Plus Other Works

Rambert Ghost Dances and other works Christopher Bruce’s masterpiece, Ghost Dances, is possibly the most popular work in Rambert’s history.
  • Venue: The Lyric Theatre
Christopher Bruce’s masterpiece, 'Ghost Dances', is possibly the most popular work in Rambert’s history. It tells stories of love and compassion, as death – in the form of the iconic “ghost dancers” – interrupts the daily lives of a series of ordinary people. Created as a response to political oppression in South America, it uses imagery from the Day of the Dead and bewitching traditional music to create a moving, intensely human work.

“Exhilarating and poignant” The Sunday Times 'Ghost Dances' is presented in a triple bill, which also features Transfigured Night, created by two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Kim Brandstrup. This dramatic love story is told through intimate duets and spectacular ensemble dancing, amplifying the beauty and romance of the Schoenberg score.

‘Symbiosis’ by Andonis Foniadakis, Resident Choreographer of Greek National Opera Ballet, completes the programme. ‘Symbiosis’ is a high velocity celebration of the Rambert dancers’ skills, with a new score by BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award-nominated composer Ilan Eshkeri.
