RAMBERT is returning to Bradford Alhambra from November 15 to 17 with a contemporary masterpiece.

Ghost Dances is part of a triple bill that sets out to display the British national dance company’s “staggering range and abundance of talent”.

Rambert’s artistic director Mark Baldwin said: “I am thrilled to present Ghost Dances, Rambert’s enduring masterwork, to move new generations of dancers and dance lovers.

“The whole programme showcases the extraordinary talents of our dance artists and musicians, such as in the Brazilian-inspired spectacle of A Linha Curva, accompanied by Rambert’s very own samba band.

“Ben Duke’s new piece Goat sees him explore the psyche, songs and characters of the incomparable Nina Simone, both joyous diva and malcontent.”

Originally created for Rambert in 1981, Ghost Dances is Christopher Bruce’s response to political

oppression in South America and has returned to the company’s repertory for the first time in 13 years.

Ghost Dances depicts stories of love and compassion, as death – in the form of the iconic ‘ghost dancers’ – interrupts the daily lives of a series of ordinary people.

Goat features Nina Simone’s best-loved songs performed live onstage.
