A Linha Curva

by Itzik Galili

A Linha Curva

A Linha Curva is 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.

'With its pops at male vanity, its raunchy glorification of muscular women, its fabulous samba music and crazy lighting, it deservedly brings the house down.'
