Ghost Dances tells stories of love and compassion, as death – in the form of the iconic “ghosts” – interrupts the daily lives of a series of ordinary people. Inspired by Latin American celebrations of the Day of the Dead and the bewitching rhythms of traditional songs, it’s a moving, intensely human work, revived here for the first time in 13 years.
Alongside this classic are two new pieces from Rambert. Tomorrow uses dance to tell the story of Macbeth, and reveal the dark desires that lead a man to murder. Frames creates a show-within-a-show, as dancers use metal poles to form shapes, structures and spaces which, quite literally, frame their dancing in a different light.
