Triple treat from Rambert

David Upton

Rambert brings Christopher Bruce’s iconic Ghost Dances and a world première to The Lowry from September 28 to 30.

Britain’s national dance company will showcases its range in a triple bill of works.

Originally created for Rambert in 1981, Ghost Dances is a response to political oppression in South America.

Choreographer and director of Greek National Opera Ballet Andonis Foniadakis’s new work features a newly commissioned score from Ilan Eshkeri, a British neo-classical composer known for his film scores, concert music and artistic collaborations. Fashion designer Tassos Sofroniou creates the costumes for the work and Sakis Birbilis the lighting design.

And Transfigured Night was created by double Olivier award-winning choreographer Kim Brandstrup in 2015 and won the 2016 Critic’s Circle National Dance Award for Best Modern Choreography.
