Re-staging of Ghost Dances in our 90th year
The revival of Christopher Bruce’s celebrated Ghost Dances will premiere at Festival Theatre, Edinburgh in November 2016. This is the first time the piece has been seen on a UK stage since 2003. We’re now looking forward to introducing a new generation to this unforgettable work.
But to do this, Rambert needs your help.
We plan our production budgets carefully to make best use of the resources available. As Ghost Dances is an existing work the music, choreography and design already exist, however costumes need to be remade for existing dancers, instruments need to be hired or bought, and sets and props need to be refurbished or remade.
Your support can help:
- £20 would pay for a set of armbands worn by the ‘ghost dancers’
- £50 pays for body paint for the ‘ghost dancers’
- £75 buys a shawl as worn by the women
- £100 covers the cost of percussion instrument hire for a week
- £250 is the cost of remaking a ghost dancer mask
- £500 purchases a guitarron – a traditional South American instrument
- £1000 will contribute to the restoration of Christopher Bruce’s painted backcloth
You can give online by visiting Big Give, by cheque made payable to Ballet Rambert Ltd, or by calling Elisha Owen on 020 8630 0642.
