A Triple Celebration: A Linha Curve/RainForest/The Art of Touch
Rambert Dance Company's May visit to Sadler's Wells is a celebration of some of the world's most outstanding and popular choreographers. Following its unprecedented success earlier this year and due to overwhelming public demand, artistic director Mark Baldwin brings back to London the irresistible samba-inspired lines and curves of Itzik Galili's A Linha Curva. In complete contrast, Rambert honours the life and work of American dance icon, Merce Cunningham with the UK revival premiere of his illustrious piece, RainForest. With its electronic score by David Tudor and reflective silver pillows by Andy Warhol, RainForest is a wonderful artefact from the 1960s. Siobhan Davies returns to Rambert with the London revival premiere of the Olivier Award-winning work The Art of Touch. The speed and wit of Domenico Scarlatti's sonatas are the triggers for the irascibly fast footwork that propel the dancers across the space scooping the air as they go, beautifully completing this eclectic programme.
