Christopher Bruce’s masterpiece, Ghost Dances, is 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 lives of a series of ordinary people. Created as a response to political oppression in South America, it uses imagery from the Day of the Dead and bewitching traditional music to create a moving, intensely human work.

This triple bill also includes Goat, a dance theatre creation from rising star Ben Duke. Darkly funny and deeply moving, it dissects the pleasure and pain of performing. The work is inspired by the music and spirit of Nina Simone, with a selection of her best loved songs performed live on stage by jazz singer Nia Lynn.

Completing the programme is Symbiosis, a high velocity celebration of the Rambert dancers’ skills by internationally acclaimed dance-maker Andonis Foniadakis, with a new score by BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award-nominated composer Ilan Eshkeri.

With live music throughout from the Rambert Orchestra, it’s a memorable evening of world class dance.
