The Rambert Dance Company by Bo Lutoslawski
The Rambert Dance Company, Britain’s oldest dance company, since its first performances in 1926 was always at the heart of the evolution of British dance. Polish émigré and former Ballet Russes dancer Marie Rambert, who in 1914 arrived in London fleeing the outbreak of the First World War, set it up. Marie Rambert legendary personality inspired the development of British dance and ballet well into the modern times.
This photograph of Michael Ho and members of the group, who rehearsed their steps before an evening performance, was taken at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London, the stage on which I saw some great, contemporary dancers like Merce Cunnigham and Pina Bausch.
