Rambert: Triptych



A triple bill of exciting dance from one of the UK’s best-loved contemporary dance companies. Mark Baldwin, Shobana Jeyasingh, Ashley Page

Sadler’s Wells

Tuesday 18 – Saturday 22 November, 2014

Tickets £12 - £38



Rambert is Britain’s national dance company. Its new triptych of dances takes you inside a series of unique worlds, from underground depths, through uncharted territories, to the outer-reaches of the cosmos. They are created by three of Britain's most exciting choreographers, and brought to life by Rambert's peerless company of world-class dancers.

Subterrain is an enigmatic voyage underground, with five couples displaying grace and power in former Scottish Ballet Director Ashley Page's sensuous work.


Terra Incognita is choreographed ground-breaking dancemaker Shobana Jeyasingh "one of our most imaginative theatrical auteurs". Her distinctive style combines mathematical rhythmic patterns from classical Indian dance with contemporary movement, and the piece draws on urban legends and ancient cartography to look at the politics and power of journeying into the unknown.


The recent discovery of the 'God Particle' inspires The Strange Charm of Mother Nature, choreographed by Rambert Artistic Director Mark Baldwin. In three movements representing the phenomena of the cosmos, the dancers fizz with the energy of the miniscule building blocks that created life, the universe and everything.


The performance is accompanied throughout by live orchestral music, ranging from Bach's Brandenburg Concerto no 3, through Stravinsky's Dumbarton Oaks, to original compositions by Gabriel Prokofiev and Cheryl Frances-Hoad.


Fuelled by this music, and packed with vivid dancing, Rambert's Triptych is a thrilling spectacle. Beautiful and breathtaking, it will live long in your memory.
