The days run away like wild horses

black-and-white portrait of Aletta Collins

Aletta Collins

The days run away like wild horses is a new creation by Aletta Collins; a witty and vivid depiction of the moments that make up a life, 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”.

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).
