RAMBERT - FEATURING ROOSTER

Featuring Christopher Bruce’s iconic dance Rooster alongside two Scottish premières: Subterrain by Ashley Page, former artistic director of Scottish Ballet, and The Castaways by Barak Marshall

‘Funny, sharp and sexy’ Daily Telegraph

‘What could be better than being serenaded by 60s music and a re-creation of classic works by the composer Mark-Anthony Turnage? The answer: nothing. When you book tickets to see Rambert you’re booking yourself a night of exquisite entertainment.’ Essential Surrey

Back on the UK stage for the first time in thirteen years, Rooster brings the rock'n'roll swagger of the Rolling Stones thrillingly to life in this evocation of the swinging sixties. Transporting you to the coolest nightspot in town, sharp-suited, snake-hipped men and strong, sassy women perform virtuoso courtship dances to some of the Stones' most famous tunes, including Not Fade Away, Paint It Black, As Tears Go By, Sympathy for the Devil and Little Red Rooster.

Combining dark humour and inventive movement to infectious world music, Barak Marshall’s The Castaways is a terrific piece of dance theatre – ‘Rambert’s dancers play out their dramas and foibles as superbly as they ride the irresistible wave of Marshall’s choreography’ The Times

Subterrain, by former Scottish Ballet artistic director Ashley Page, is a showcase of the supreme talents of Rambert’s dancers. Five couples dominate the stage driven by Mark-Anthony Turnage’s haunting music and Aphex Twin’s electronic rhythms – ‘a compelling piece, immaculately danced’ The Guardian

Rambert is Britain’s national dance company – an ensemble of world-class dancers and live orchestra performing classic and contemporary works to give audiences an exhilarating theatrical experience.

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
