Every artist starts somewhere and a new show making a stop in Aberdeen shows how three choreographers made theirs.
The British inventor, discovering the extended lines, razor-sharp angles and musical sensibility that became trademarks.
The hip-hop battler from France, with hundreds of millions of YouTube views for her videos, who has never worked with a contemporary dance company, until now.
The folk dancer and rock musician from Israel, handed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and grabbing it in unique style.
World-leading contemporary dance company Rambert presents revivals of two landmark dance works, alongside a new creation by a rising star.
Fans of Wayne McGregor, Marion Motin and Hofesh Shechter know them as great, distinctive choreographers. Rambert’s new show brings together their moments of breakthrough
Created for Rambert by Wayne McGregor in 2002, “PreSentient” marked the arrival of a major new talent with its perfect match between McGregor’s angular movement and the lyrical phrasing of Steve Reich’s music.
Hofesh Shechter had a similar impact in 2007 with “In your rooms”, blending the personal and political with heart-stopping intensity.
Completing the triple bill is “Rouge”, a new work by Marion Motin. The French choreographer has hundreds of millions of YouTube hits for her hip hop-inspired movement in videos including Christine and the Queens’ Tilted and Dua Lipa’s IDGAF. She has never worked with a contemporary company, until now.
“Rambert: McGregor/Motin/Shechter” will be at His Majesty’s Theatre from Tuesday, February 22, to Thursday, February 25.
Tickets are available at the Aberdeen Performing Arts website, 01224 641122 or at the HMT, Music Hall or Lemon Tree box offices.
