★★★★✰ Rambert’s latest programme is a night of hellos and goodbyes, marking the debut of the company’s new standalone junior faction, Rambert2, as well the final performance of a repertory favourite, Christopher Bruce’s Ghost Dances.
Hofesh Schechter joins the ranks of choreographers who have directed (or co-directed in Schechter’s case, along with John Fulljames) Gluck’s Orpheus opera: they include Frederick Ashton, Kenneth MacMillan, Pina Bausch and Mark Morris, among others.
Rambert dancer Stephen Wright is also a photographer - here he blogs about what's like to perform on stage, as seen from the wings. Enjoy...
There is surely something excellent lurking within this work, the intent of which I have failed to perceive, but I will just have to wait for The Choreographer’s next Cut to get it.
