Ghost Dances and other works - T1310722458

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. Visually referencing the Day of the Dead, and driven by bewitching Latin American folk music, it is a moving, intensely human work. This triple bill also includes a brand new dance theatre creation by rising star Ben Duke, inspired by the music and spirit of Nina Simone, with a selection of her best-loved songs performed on stage. Completing the programme is an all-action work by internationally acclaimed choreographer Andonis Foniadakis.Choreographer Christopher Bruce (Ghost Dances).

Macbeth/Tomorrow/Hydrargyrum - T01198280343

Something wicked this way comes! Rambert celebrates its 90th anniversary in 2016, returning to Bath with a stunning programme of virtuoso dancing and live music, including a new work inspired by Macbeth. Tomorrow is a split-stage experience taking you inside the dark, dangerous world of Shakespeare's hero-turned-villain. Seven eerie ?witches' perform a danse macabre, their sinister, spellbinding movements presented alongside the pivotal moments of the drama. It will make you see the Scottish Play in a whole new light. A giant, revolving mirror hangs over the stage in Hydrargyrum. It offers a different angle to view the dancers as they morph from a powerful-butanonymous group to defiant-but-vulnerable individuals. A third piece looks at the subject of migration. It uses multimedia projections to create an evershifting backdrop as the dancers dramatise the mix of hope and fear that make up the migrant experience of leaving one home to search for another. All three original dance works are packed with powerful images and emotions, making an utterly distinctive and memorable programme from Britain's national dance company.

Featuring live singer [Melanie Marshall], it is perfomed to Kurt Weill's Je ne t'aime pas and [Leslie Bricusse]'s Feeling Good, with costumes inspired by world-renowned fashion designer [Roland Mouret}.

Gran Partita is set to four movements from Mozart's exceptional piece of the same name. Capturing the verve and beauty of the music in movement, this emotional and dramatic piece complements Mozart's heart-melting sound.

Pond Way/Constant Speed/Bloom - T0662435196

Merce Cunningham is one of world's most revered and enigmatic choreographers and Rambert is one of the few companies permitted to perform his work. Pond Way can be described as one of Cunningham's ?nature studies' where the movement evokes birds, animals or landscapes. It is a lyrical, contemplative and sensuous piece, with the movement, according to Cunningham, being reminiscent of the game of skimming stones over a pond, which he loved to play as a child. The production is further enriched with a backcloth from the visual artist Roy Lichtenstein and a soundscape by Brian Eno. Constant Speed, Baldwin's first choreographic work as Artistic Director for Rambert, has been widely acclaimed for its novel and charming approach to physics. Commissioned by the Institute of Physics, Constant Speed has been inspired by three of Einstein's key 1905 theories. The result is 19 of Rambert's dancers whizzing around the stage like hyperactive molecules, in a joyous and athletic frenzy of movement. Performed to sparkling waltzes by Franz Leh?r, this ingenious and witty piece succeeds in making physics intriguing and fun. Bloom - Drawing its inspiration from a variety of sources, ranging from 1970s romantic posters to contemporary gypsy music, Bloom explores the idea of creating that perfect romantic moment. Aletta's impressive theatre and film experience will play a large role in the cration of Bloom, using improvisation and character work to create movement and narrative for 16 of Rambert's dancers. Bloom is performed to music that includes tracks from the acclaimed Romanian gypsy band Taraf de Haidouks, with disigns by [Simon Daw] and lighting design by [Charles Balfour].Choreographer Merce Cunningham (Pond Way).

Set to extracts from Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera, Antony Tudor's Judgment of Paris is a sardonic take on the classical myth. In this black comedy, the three women are no longer goddesses but tired, tawdry floozies competing for the attentions of a drunken client in a seedy night-club. This little Tudor gem was first performed by Rambert in 1940 and has been revived on several occasions since.
