Ballet Dance Review - Rambert Dance Company: -
On Thursday 15th October I went to see Rambert Dance Company perform a Triple Bill at the Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury. In this performance it included the following works -
Tread Softly
Choreography: Henri Oguike
Music: "Death and the Maiden" String Quartet No 14 by Schubert
Costume design: Asalia Khadjé
Lighting design: Yaron Abulafia
The Comedy of Change
Choreography: Mark Baldwin
Music: Julian Anderson
Production design: Kader Attia
Costume and chrysalis design: Georg Meyer-Wiel
Choreography: Christopher Bruce
Music: Bobby McFerrin, Yo-Yo Ma
Set and costume design: Marian Bruce
Lighting Design: Christina R Gianelli

It was the first time I'd seen Rambert Dance Company and their performance really captivated me, I really caught a sense of the dancer's passion and drive.
Hush certainly lifted my spirits. I was particularly fond of the unusual use vocalisations in the music; the score included some unfamiliar adaptations to renowned classics which thoroughly engaged me. The music definitely enhanced the cheerful mood.

The affectionate yet comic choreography really emphasized the theme celebration of family life. The two dancers, who had their roles as the parents, performed the pas de deux with such warmth and love; they were sure to touch several emotions of the audience and remind them of their own happy memories.

You could really feel the family connection especially as the dancers entered and exited the stage, the way they were all linked by holding hands emphasized the family bond. It was a true delight to watch and felt me smiling.
