“Bold, risk-taking, agile and beautiful, Rambert’s dancers combine rigorous technique and artistry with an extraordinary ability to challenge and entertain.”
Rambert is Britain’s flagship contemporary dance group. Under the artistic direction of Mark Baldwin the company tours throughout the UK and internationally, producing an unrivalled quantity of new work on the large-scale. Established in 1926 by Polish dance teacher Marie Rambert, the company continues to build on its rich heritage to deliver exciting and innovative programming and performances, born through bold collaborations with composers, designers and visual artists. The company believes in performing with live music, and works with Rambert Orchestra in a variety of musical styles. Rambert’s 22 dancers are considered some of the finest and most versatile in the world, performing a range of styles with precision and flair. Committed to creating dance for future generations, the company seeks out and nurtures new and exciting choreographers.
Rambert provides a vibrant and accessible dance experience and is committed to engaging people of all ages through learning and participation. Commissioning four new dance productions every year, the company’s repertoire is rich and markedly eclectic. Selected works include the prestigious Oliver Award winning The Art of Touch, performed to Scarlatti sonatas. Declared by Merce Cunningham to be one of the world’s finest performers of his work, Rambert produced Rainforest, where the dancers perform in a set designed by Andy Warhol. By contrast A Linha Curva featured the full company, exploding on to the stage in a fusion of samba and contemporary dance, to Brazilian percussion music.
Rambert toured to Asia in August/September 2012, in collaboration with HarrisonParrott.
