Ciao Italia! The Operaestate Festival 2017

On Saturday 22 July, Rambert performed the Rambert Event at the Operaestate Festival in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy. This site-specific piece features extracts of Merce Cunningham choreography, set to music composed and performed by former Music Fellow Quinta and Radiohead‘s Philip Selway.

Rambert dancer Carolyn Bolton kept our Instagram updated with their progress.

The dancers started their day with a quick dip…

…before turning up the heat in class

The tech team worked hard to get the stage ready before rehearsals got underway

Have definitely performed in worse places #bassanodelgrappa #rambertabroad
