Dance

Rambert

Theatre Royal, New Road, Brighton

Wednesday-Saturday March 21-24, 7.30pm with a 1.30pm performance on Thursday

Tickets £13.90-£35.40

The contemporary dance company Rambert brings three dances that reflect the times we live in to Brighton. Goat, choreographed by Ben Duke, is a darkly funny dance theatre creation that dissects the pleasure and pain of performing in our imperfect world. It’s infused with the music and spirit of Nina Simone that features singer Nia Lynn performing her songs with an on-stage jazz band. The high speeds of Symbiosis reach the urban pulse of our cities.. The piece by dance-maker Adonis Foniadakis is performed to the music of composer Ilan Eshkeri. The third piece, To Be Me, is performed by Rambert Associate Julie Cunningham & Company and is an expressive work exploring gender and identity. It’s set to Kate Tempest’s hip hop-influenced poetry collection inspired by the mythical character Tiresias.
