A popular British dance company will return to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre with one of its most iconic works as part of a dynamic triple bill of performances.

Rambert will bring Christopher Bruce’s Ghost Dances, which was originally created for the dance company in 1981, to the theatre between March 15 and 17.

Ghost Dances is Bruce’s response to political oppression in South America and has returned to the company’s repertory for the first time in 13 years.

It will also showcase two other acts – A Linha Curva and Goat, which is a dance-theatre piece from award-winning choreographer and performer Ben Duke, which premiered last year.

Organisers said Goat dissects the pleasure and pain of performing and is inspired by the music and spirit of Nina Simone, with a selection of her best loved songs performed live on stage by jazz singer Nia Lynn.

Around 26 of Rambert’s dancers along with four percussionists will perform the revival of Itzik Galili’s percussion-fuelled A Linha Curva, based on Latin American samba rhythms and movements.

Nominated for best choreography in the 2009 Critic’s Circle National Dance Awards, and best new dance production in the 2010 Olivier Awards, A Linha Curva contributed to Rambert’s 2010 Olivier Award for outstanding achievement in dance.

Itzik Galili created both choreography and designs for the piece with an original score by Dutch percussion group Percossa.

Rambert’s senior rehearsal director Mikaela Polley said: “It’s fantastic to be back in Aylesbury, returning for a second time to this beautiful waterside venue.

“I’m really excited about this programme of dance – it truly is an evening of Rambert classics.

“I had the honour of performing in Ghost Dances myself when I was a dancer with the company and it’s very special to see the next generation of dance artists bring this incredibly moving piece back to life.

“The sheer scale and infectious rhythms of A Linha Curva will have you on your feet, while Goat will show you the Rambert dancers as you’ve never seen them before.”
