Rambert Event
London United Kingdom
Share this event:

Merce Cunningham's Events were the great choreographer's signature works, exemplifying his revolutionary approach to performance-making.

50 years after the first Event was staged in Vienna, and five years after Cunningham's death, Britain's national dance company is creating a new Event. The audience are free to move between spaces in Rambert's brand new home on London's South Bank as the Company's extraordinary dancers perform extracts from 10 Cunningham works, dating back to 1953, staged by former Cunningham dancer and rehearsal assistant Jeannie Steele. The Event features costumes and sets based on artworks by Gerhard Richter - widely acclaimed as the world's greatest living painter - and new music composed and performed live by Philip Selway from Radiohead, Adem Ilhan and Quinta.

Rambert Event is inspired by the spirit of Merce Cunningham, as well as the choreography. It brings together the world-class collaborators, disparate elements, and ideas of chance, serendipity and play that were central to Cunningham's work. Together, they form a vibrant, living celebration of the work of the most influential figure in contemporary dance history.


Please note that it will not be possible for audience members to be seated throughout the performance. To protect the floors in the dance studios, audience members are requested to wear flat shoes (no high heels). There are no cloakroom facilities, so customers should avoid if possible bringing large bags or other bulky items. Food and drink are not allowed in the studios, and refreshments are not available at the venue (but there are lots of cafes, bars and restaurants close by). If you have specific access issues, please contact Rambert.
