Rambert return to Sadler's Wells with a mixed bill.
The programme opens with the London première of a new version of Linear Remains by Rambert's Associate Choreographer Rafael Bonachela. First seen in November 2001, Bonachela has during the last few months revisited and revised the work, increasing the number of dancers from six to eleven.
To mark the centenary of Rambert's Founding Choreographer, Sir Frederick Ashton, the Company is presenting Five Brahms Waltzes in the Manner of Isadora Duncan, which he created in 1976 in celebration of Rambert's 50th anniversary. The work is being re-staged by Lynn Seymour on whom the work was originally created.
Also included is a new version of A Tragedy of Fashion, the first work created for the Ballet Club (later to become Ballet Rambert) by Ashton in 1926. As no record of the original choreography exists, Ian Spink, inspired by a few precious photographs, has been invited to re-interpret the work for our time. This will receive its World Première at Sadler's Wells.
Reflection, by Fin Walker and Ben Park of Walker Dance Park Music is another new work receiving its London Première. Dynamic and idiosyncratic, Reflection is an exploration of change and impermanence and is performed to a score created in tandem with the choreography.
