To celebrate its 90th anniversary Rambert is taking over National Theatre’s River Stage festival for a whole weekend from 19 – 21 August. The dance company has programmed works by James Cousins, Julie Cunningham and Mbulelo Ndabeni.
In addition to a smorgasbord of dance performance the weekend includes live music from multi-instrumentalist Quinta, yoga, a dance class for over 60s and a family workshop for parents with young children.
James Cousins Company will perform the rising choreography stars’ piece Within Her Eyes; Julie Cunningham revisits We Shall See the Sky, which was originally commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance for What Remains Festival 2016; and N’da Dance Company take on Mbulelo Ndabeni’s NaY.
Other artists and companies taking part include Simone Damberg Würtz, Middleton Corpus, A Linha Curva, Collectress, and Rambert’s youth dance company Quicksilver.
River Stage festival is a free outdoor season in front of the National Theatre in London, with events hosted every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 29 July until 29 August. The following (and final) weekend includes performances from DJ Charisma, brass band Brassroots and Dom Coyote and the Bloodmoneys.
