Rambert return for their latest online live performance with a double bill featuring a new work from Marne van Opstal & Imre van Opstal, and Marion Motin’s Rouge.
Choreographers: Imre van Opstal and Marne van Opstal
We all have a body. So when did life become so artificial, we can’t remember what’s real? What is beauty? And how are we meant to attain an ideal state when we can’t agree what it is?
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.
Choreographer: Marion Motin
Music: Micka Luna
Costume Design: Yann Seabra
Lighting Design: Judith Leray
Marion Motin is a French contemporary choreographer whose work frequently centres on strong female characters. Her 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.
“Like watching a movie, immersive and absorbing, yet easily the most technically sophisticated live dance production I’ve seen since theaters closed”
Age guidance: 15+
The first of these two pieces contains some strong language, and may not be suitable for children. The piece confronts questions around body image and the dancers perform dressed in silicon “nude” suits, giving the impression of nudity while being fully covered.
During the performance of Rouge, some scenes have a strobing effect that may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or other photo sensitivities.
