Britain’s national dance company showcases its staggering range in a triple bill of works at Theatre Clwyd from Wednesday 7 – Saturday 10 March.

Itzik Galili’s A Linha Curva is a high-octane work based on Latin American rhythms and movements, first performed by Rambert in 2009.

The piece features 26 dancers from Rambert and the Rambert School and four percussionists.

Nominated for Best Choreography prize in the 2009 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.

Known for his technically detailed dance works full of energy and power, choreographer and director of Greek National Opera Ballet Andonis Foniadakis’s Symbiosis is set to a specially-commissioned score from Ilan Eshkeri, a British neo-classical composer known for his film scores, concert music and artistic collaborations.

Pushing the dancers to their limits, Symbiosis is a stunning display of the Rambert dancers’ skills and virtuosity.

Aletta Collins’ The Days run away like wild horses is a witty and vivid depiction of the little moments that make up a life, set to Arturo Márquez’s pulsating, Cuban-inspired Danzones 1-3. With designs by 2017 Olivier Award-winner Katrina Lindsay, the piece is created in collaboration with and commissioned by Daniel Katz.

Rambert’s Artistic Director Mark Baldwin said, ‘‘Theatre Clwyd plays an important cultural role in Rambert’s touring programme.

We love coming to Wales and this theatre to perform, and the workshops we share throughout the year keep us connected to the community, making us co-creators in these visits.

I am thrilled that our iconic celebratory piece, A Linha Curva, will storm the stage alongside two other dynamic works.

In The Days run away like wild horses, the choreographer Aletta Collins fuses her witty and agile choreography to the rhythmic excitement of Artuto Marquez’s Cuban-inspired score. Symbiosis is a new work by Andonis Foniadakis, a choreographer much in demand internationally.

The piece stretches the dancers’ energy and capabilities with spectacular effect. Rambert’s orchestra loves performing in Mold – listen out for the inspiration of Samba, the vibrant Arturo Marquez and a beautiful new score for Symbiosis.’
