Rambert Social: September

The best of Rambert this month, as told by our staff and artists

And they’re back! The dancers came bouncing through the doors of our South Bank home, refreshed after their summer break and ready to get the new season underway…

Rambert dancer Luke Ahmet picked up the 2017 IARA Award for Best Dance Act

Congratulations Luke!

And it was straight into rehearsals for our UK tour, getting reacquainted with the range of repertory we are taking to each venue and preparing two brand new pieces, Andonis Foniadakis‘s Symbiosis and Ben Duke‘s Goat

And off they went to the first stop of the tour, The Lowry, Salford, kicking things off in style with the world premiere of Symbiosis

Dancers Liam Francis and Hannah Rudd took over Rambert’s and the Lowry’s Instagram accounts, sharing all the behind the scenes action, including some alternative warm up regimes…

Speaking of premieres, we announced a new production coming next year, called Life is a Dream. Adam Park caught some special moments at the promo photoshoot, like this one of Liam Francis defying gravity to get the perfect shot…

Can your colleagues do this or nah? #rambert #photoshoot #newseason

Elsewhere at Rambert HQ, there’s been music sounding across all corners of the building with orchestra rehearsals and workshops aplenty. Not to mention our autumn classes, new young dancers joining Quicksilver, training for our animateurs from across the UK, a groundbreaking CPD course for GCSE teachers AND a London Fashion Week show…
