The days run away like wild horses
The days run away like wild horses is a new creation by Aletta Collins, set to Arturo Márquez’s pulsating, Cuban-inspired Danzones 1-3. The piece takes its title from a poem by Charles Bukowski: “The days run away like wild horses over the hills”.
The dance begins with a homage to Zbigniew Rybczyński’s Oscar-winning short animated film Tango, expanding on the themes of interaction and repetition to create a witty, vivid study of how different moments combine to form a life.
Aletta is one of the UK’s most in demand choreographers, working widely in theatre, musicals and opera. Her previous creations for Rambert are bloom (2006) and Awakenings (2010).
