Rambert presents

Pierre Tappon


Contemporary dance meets a flute solo of JS Bach’s Partita in A minor, BWV 1013. Inspired by a recent trip to Berlin, this is the emotional journey of a man as his perceptions of his surroundings and struggles change. Wall represents the boundaries of our lives - the piece explores why they are important to us and how they affect us.

Walls have an extreme importance in modern society, providing shelter and comfort by constituting our houses. But more generally they are there to shape space, giving direction and defining what’s mine to yours (borders, wall of a room, membranes). It is also our way to lock things away, making one safer and sometimes suppressing others lives (prisons, concentration camps). However our biggest wall is most probably the one that blocks our mind to see beyond and act further, fluctuating between providing us stability and being our worst enemy.

Joel & Pete, with Inky Cloak

In Good Company

"Joel O’Donoghue and Pete Yelding’s Dragging Words as mystical and as weirdly meaningless as a mantra." – Sanjoy Roy, 2015.

Joel and Pete have been sharing the wheel of their choreographic car for the last three years. Amidst fears that they now know their journey too well, they have introduced new driver/dancer PJ Hurst and navigators/directors Daniel Fulvio and Martin Moriarty to their creative process. No one is quite sure where they are going, but they’ve all agreed on a radio station and are more or less in the same gear. It could all end in a car crash, or be the best road trip ever. Only time will tell.
