Mark Baldwin presents his approach to choreographing THE CREATION for Rambert’s 90th anniversary.
As well as the scale and beauty of THE CREATION, Baldwin was attracted to creative potential of Haydn’s oratorio. He uses the different sections of the work to act as a metaphor for Rambert’s 90 year history. He willfully keeps changing gears at each part of the oratorio, almost as if the dancers were reviewing the 90 year history of the company, known internationally for its versatility, performing in a variety of styles ranging from the balletic to a very physical style inspired by street theatre.
