Rambert Dance Company - A Steel Garden/Judgment of Paris/Divine Influence/Constant Speed archiveBritain's biggest and most exciting touring dance company who often tour two programmes at a time. Dancing to a mixture of musical styles they provide enormously watchable evenings. Christopher Bruce CBE returns to Rambert for the first time since his retirement as Artistic Director in November 2002. A Steel Garden brings together Bruce and composer David C. Heath, whose composition Dawn of a New Age was the starting point for the collaboration, and which was extended and developed as the dance evolved. Bruce’s choreographic career began with Rambert in 1969 and he has gone on to become one of Britain’s most important and well-known choreographers. 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. Divine Influence, by Rambert dancer/choreographer Martin Joyce, was originally created for the 2005 Rambert Workshop Season and is an intimate duet, performed to the third movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. Divine Influence is a fast-moving, passionate encounter that bristles with comic tension and moments of real tenderness. 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 Lehár, this ingenious and witty piece succeeds in making physics intriguing and fun Rambert Dance Company - A Steel Garden/Judgment of Paris/Divine Influence/Constant Speed website.
