Following on from the phenomenal success of Transfigured Night, Danish choreographer and two time Olivier Award-winner Kim Brandstrup creates a new work for Rambert.
In the same room, many decades apart: a woman incarcerated, presumed mad; a boy experiencing the world through his computer screen; a theatre group discovering a 400- year-old Spanish play with surprising relevance today.
With stunning imagery from filmmakers the Quay Brothers, a symphony orchestra playing the rich music of Witold Lutosławski and dramatic, lyrical dancing from Rambert’s brilliant ensemble, this is a rich retelling of the 17th century play by Pedro Calderón de la Barca, Life is A Dream.
