  • Exclusive access to Rambert dancers’ daily activities and rehearsals of new work in the making
  • Live studio performances created by Rambert dancers and associates
  • Arts and education leaders discuss the future of dance in schools
  • Part of Rambert Revealed, a week-long programme of public activities at the company’s studios on London’s South Bank

This Thursday Rambert presents ten hours of exclusive online access to a day behind the scenes of Britain’s national dance company. Rambert Live will be broadcast on the Rambert Facebook page and website, where it will also be available to catch up on after the event.

The day-long stream starts with morning class, where the dancers fine tune their skills starting with basic technique before turning up the pace with high speed, physical movement, warming up for the day ahead. Viewers will also see brand new choreography created on the company, as internationally-renowned choreographer Kim Brandstrup rehearses Life is a Dream, months ahead of its premiere at Sadler’s Wells in May 2018.

Arts writer and broadcaster Sarah Crompton chairs a panel of leading figures in education and the arts, including Arlene Phillips and choreographer James Cousins, to discuss the future of dance in schools. This is followed by studio performances of dance work created and performed by Rambert dancers and associates.

Rambert Artistic Director Mark Baldwin:

“Rambert is a world-class company of supremely talented and diverse performers. While we are proud to tour dance across the UK and internationally, audiences might not always be aware of the amount of sheer craft, grit and dedication that goes into making us who we are.

“Rambert Live is the perfect way to invite everyone in, from dedicated fans to people who might just be a bit curious about contemporary dance. Wherever they are, viewers can experience the magic that happens behind the scenes and take part in discussions about important issues that take us beyond the studio walls.”
