Songs of a Wayfarer/Momenta/Divine Influence/Constant Speed

Songs of a Wayfarer by Danish choreographer Kim Brandstrup was specially commissioned by Rambert to form part of its programme at the 2004 Edinburgh International Festival. This evocative work explores the complex emotions associated with unrequited love. It is danced to Gustav Mahler’s achingly beautiful song-cycle of the same title. Momenta by Rambert dancer/choreographer Mikaela Polley was created for the Rambert Workshop Season in January 2005. Momenta is an ensemble work for ten dancers and is performed to an original score of the same name by Patrick Nunn. The piece accelerates in physical and musical power culminating in a frenetic final movement. 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.
