Young Filmmakers Project: Rambert at Garsington Opera, Oxfordshire, 2016
In the 90 Years on the Move project, a team of young people from Lambeth and Southwark, aged 16-25, made a short film about Rambert’s 2016 tour to the Opera Pavilion on the Wormsley Estate, Oxfordshire. Here, with the Garsington Opera, the company performed ‘The Creation’ (2016), a new work by Artistic Director Mark Baldwin celebrating the company’s 90th anniversary.
Giving a glimpse into life on tour, past and present, this film also reflects on Rambert’s artistic heritage, reputation, and diversity. It includes footage of dancers in class, interviews with key members of staff, and material from the Rambert Archive.
The four teams were trained in film-making skills by our project partner Iconic Steps, a social enterprise video training company.
90 Years on the Move was part of Rambert at 90, a project marking Rambert’s 90th anniversary, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
