One of Rambert’s all-time best loved works, Rooster tops a triple bill of stunning dance including Terra Incognita by leading choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh. Set to Gabriel Prokofiev’s driving score, this is an atmospheric piece about exploration and migration evoking the sense of mystery that once inspired ancient sea-farers.
Completing the programme, Dark Arteries sees Rambert’s world-class dancers joined on stage by the full ranks of the world-famous, Yorkshire-based Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band for Mark Baldwin’s powerful, emotion-filled work about community and change, inspired by the 30th anniversary of the end of the miners’ strike.
'Rambert has a long and proud tradition of performing with live music. And that tradition has rarely been on more impressive display than in Dark Arteries' The Guardian
This is Rambert looking great, dancing up a storm, and sounding better than ever. It is dance which draws you into its emotional heart, lifts the hairs on the back of your neck, and raises the roof.
