Tomorrow inhabits the dark and dangerous world of Macbeth. Building on her recent, landmark production of the play, Lucy Guerin’s dance work gives physical life to the psychological conflict that led a man to murder.
Tomorrow is Lucy Guerin’s first work for Rambert. It features a score by composer, sound and multimedia artist Scanner (Robin Rimbaud) whose previous dance collaborations include creating detritus with Wayne McGregor for Rambert in 2001. Designs are by Conor Murphy (who designed costumes for Labyrinth of Love in 2012) and lighting is by Lee Curran, who also worked for Rambert on Alexander Whitley’s Frames.
