Livestream Season 2021
Following the success of our first real-time digital livestream on Rambert Home Studio in September, we’re continuing to livestream online performance throughout 2021.
As soon as we can return to theatres (safely) we will – and we can’t wait to see you if you’d like to join us. But we also want to continue to explore the new and different experiences we can invite you to online.
Rather than performing a straight show on a stage and film it for you, we’re discovering making shows knowing there’ll be cameras involved from the get-go opens up a whole world of adventure. So, these are not (just) high-quality broadcasts; we’re exploring cinematography integrated with live performance, to land you right into the middle of the action. We’re aiming for an audience experience we could never achieve in a theatre.
Watching it felt more like watching a movie, immersive and absorbing, yet easily the most technically sophisticated live dance production I’ve seen since theaters closed.

…a daftly ambitious triumph of logistics and production, one that embraces the current restrictions rather than being cowed by them.

The safety curtain: Our creations are currently underway at Rambert’s studios where every effort is being taken to ensure the safety of dancers, crew and company Repeated testing is taking place alongside social distancing measures and bubbles for the dancers.
17 dancers, 36 scenes, 100 characters…
Like passing-by miniature scenes through a train window, or cycling through the streets and peering into apartments, we all love to glimpse into other lives, and the homes they’re lived out in.
Rambert’s brilliant dancers invite us into wildly different worlds and surprising set-ups. People trying to live their lives, navigate dilemmas, swerve mishaps and survive their mini-dramas.
Rooms is a daftly ambitious dance-theatre-film that is performed live. It’s sometimes absurd it’s oftentimes funny. It’s beautiful and it’s peculiar, and occasionally a little bit sad. Or maybe it’s all perfectly normal.
Double Bill - Marne Van Opstal & Irme Van Opstal + Marion Motin’s Rouge
Siblings Marne van Opstal and Imre van Opstal (company dancers NDT, Batsheva) are among the hottest up-and-coming new choreographers on the scene. Rambert is always looking for exciting new voices, so we’ve invited them to unleash their fresh creative force on our dancers.
Marion Motin’s choreography for Dua Lipa (IDGAF) and Christine and the Queens (Christine, Tilted) has a quirky hip hop vibe. Rouge is what happened when we invited pop’s coolest choreographer to work with Rambert’s daring dancers. Now she’s back in the studio re-making Rouge with a new cinematographic twist.
Rambert2 x Benoit Swan Pouffer
Rambert’s Artistic Director creates a new piece especially for the fresh new talent of Rambert2. These early career dancers were handpicked from more than 650, for their outstanding ability and individuality.
Having challenged five different choreographers to expand the frontiers of real-time livestream performance, Benoit now takes his turn to create for this exciting new cinematic medium. Always ambitious, always daring, we can’t wait to see what new and stimulating audience experiences he creates.
