Dancing to Spring & The Flying Trapeze
Rambert: Evening of New Choreography
It's time to get that body moving. Don't worry if you can't dance though; that's all up to the performers. All you have to do is get your feet from your front door to the Southbank Centre, where over the next month, they will be showing Between four juicy acts to get your teeth into.
Rambert is a contemporary dance company that supports young choreographers. In this new season, they will be showcasing three post-modern dance performances staged by Miguel Altunaga, Kirill Burlov, Dane Hurst, and Patricia Okenwa. These include Automatic Flesh, which explores the balance between mechanical and emotional movement, Woman and her Riding Hood, which looks at how the environment changes the way our bodies behave, Primitive, which is influenced by instinctual reactions, and Longing, a glance at our need for symmetry.
Meryl Tankard is an Australian dancer and choreographer, and for The Oracle, she explores opposing concepts: Man versus nature, masculine & feminine, nurture & violence, and strength against vulnerability. Set to Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, this sensual dance is performed by Paul White, and will be followed by a post-show discussion.
Lucy Guerin Inc. is an Australian touring dance company, and right now they have come to Britain to entertain us with a very funny performance. Untrained pits two untrained men (read this however you wish) against two professional dancers. Each are given the same instructions - twirl, jump, roll, take off your shirts - but the results are somewhat more varied.
