Rambert: Love, Art & Rock n Roll
at Sadler's Wells
Britain's national dance company brings dances about love, art and rock n roll to Sadler's Wells. Two lovers meet by moonlight in Transfigured Night. We see their confrontation from the woman's point of view, then from the man's, revealing their hopes, fears and secrets. Created by double Olivire award-winning choreographer Kim Brandstrup, it is a cinematic love story told through virtuosic dancing to Schoenberg's beautiful score. The 3 Dancers is based on one of Picasso's greatest paintings, and the tragic love triangle that inspired it. Choreographer Diy Veldman and composer Elean Kats-Chernin bring to life Picasso's vivid Cubist imagery and the themes of love, desire and doom which haunt his work. Topping the bill is your final chance to see Rooster, Christopher Bruce's funny, thrilling smash hit about boys meeting girls in the swinging sixties. Sharp-dressed, snake-hipped men dance to impress strong, sassy women, to the pulsating rock n roll of the Rolling Stones' most famous tunes.
