Worldwide talent search opens for Rambert2
Rambert is inviting the world’s finest early-career dancers to apply for Rambert2, a new ensemble designed to develop and showcase the next generation of highly skilled, thinking dancers.
Rambert2 will perform on the Sadler’s Wells stage in London in November 2018 and tour to 15 venues throughout the UK, with a triple bill of works by three of the most exciting choreographers working in dance today. Alongside revivals of Rafael Bonachela’s and Sharon Eyal’s breakthrough works E2 7SD and Killer Pig, Rambert2 will create a new piece by former Alvin Ailey dancer and Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet artistic director Benoit-Swan Pouffer. For schools, Rambert2 will remount Kamuyot, a work created by world-famous choreographer Ohad Naharin for non-theatre spaces and teenage audiences.
During their year, dancers will complete a new postgraduate qualification, MA in Professional Dance Performance, awarded by Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, one of the country’s leading dance conservatoires.
Rambert2 is the first programme in the world to integrate professional experience at the highest level with postgraduate study. All members will receive financial support equivalent to the London Living Wage and be based at Rambert’s home on London’s south bank.
Outstanding contemporary dancers without significant professional experience are invited to apply from Friday 1 December to join the first Rambert2 cohort from July 2018.
Open auditions will be held in London in February 2018. For full details about the course and how to apply, see www.rambert.org.uk/rambert2.
"I am thrilled and humbled to have been provided the opportunity to create a new work for Rambert2. Choreographing a work with dancers at the beginning of their career is a chance to give back and shape a new generation of extraordinary talent. To collaborate with such exciting, raw talent, under the iconic Rambert name, will be an incredibly special experience."
Rambert2 is a partnership between Rambert and Rambert School. Rambert2 will be funded through a combination of box office revenues, Rambert’s core funding from Arts Council England and a major three-year grant from The Linbury Trust. The company’s debut season is also supported by Sadler’s Wells.
