American-born Barak Marshall has presented work across the world but rarely in the UK. Arresting, original and fevered in style, Barak made his Rambert debut in October 2013 with The Castaways.
Set to a vibrant mix of traditional Yiddish music and American popular tunes from the 1950s, Barak Marshall’s The Castaways is a humorous and playful exploration of human nature. Celebrated for his inventive choreography and witty theatricality, Barak has a truly unique style, the way he brings together popular music, inventive dance and enthralling story lines make for an unmissable spectacle.
