A Linha Curva
New video filmed in 2016 of A Linha Curva, Rambert’s party piece: a riotous explosion of sexy, colourful, samba-fuelled dance. The work features 28 performers, a massed bank of percussion and dramatic lighting – the cumulative effect has audiences on their feet and cheering (once they’ve got their breath back).
A Linha Curva was nominated for the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production, and helped Rambert win the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance that year for its programme of new works.
Choreography, lighting and costumes: Itzik Galili; restaging: Mikaela Polley; music: Percossa.
Rambert is joined by guest performers from Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance.
Filmed at Sadler’s Wells, May 2016.
