Promising an evening of breathtaking, thought-provoking dance performances, Rambert take to the Lowry stage for three shows kicking off on Wed 25 May.

The third stop of their tour features three short pieces by three brilliant and daring choreographers, each deeply different from the last but all united in the exploration of our shared existential questions, and created to invite audiences to change how they see the world.

Britain’s oldest dance company, but also the most exciting, Rambert arrives in Salford to showcase its latest run, after their 2021 show, Draw From Within, garnered characteristic rave reviews, with The Guardian celebrating the ‘live energy vibrating across the auditorium’.

Choreographer Alonzo King interprets the universal compulsion to rediscover one’s source in Following the Subtle Current Upstream—in his own words, he explains: “everything that exists in nature is seeking to return to its source. The child runs to its parents, and the river seeks the ocean. Salmon return from the sea to reach their original spawning grounds.”

In Eye Candy, Imre van Opstal and Marne van Opstal look at the pleasure and trauma of inhabiting the human form, all whilst interrogating the beauty standards we’ve forced upon it, and in a new piece titled Cerberus, Ben Duke combines grand myth and personal narrative in an examination of how stories connect us.
