Rambert. The Triptych

Watch online the performance Rambert. The Triptych by The Sopot Dance Theatre until the end of December 2020.

As the title suggests, the performance is a triptych inspired by the life and work of a dancer, dance educator and founder of the oldest dance company in Great Britain – Marie Rambert. The authors of the performance are Joanna M. Czajkowska (part 1/ THE OLD CONTINENT), Małgorzata Dzierżon (part 2/ THE ENGLISH SCENE) and Anna Akabali (part 3/ ARTISTIC JOURNEYS). 

Each part of the performance Rambert. The Triptych refers to a different period in the artistic and private life of Marie Rambert and may work independently as a whole. However, only when put together those parts constitute a full and rich artistic statement, which pleases with diversity on the one hand, and it shows the complexity and interpenetration of Marie’s worlds and on the other.

Part I

THE OLD CONTINENT – The first part presents the image of Europe before World War I : crazy, artistic and avant-garde.

Part II

THE ENGLISH SCENE – This part is dedicated to Marie’s life in Britain.The performance reflects the longing for harmony, beauty and the idyllic interwar period, which brings Marie love, a happy family life and professional success.

Part III

ARTISTIC JOURNEYS – The era of jazz and travel. Travel, time and change are the main threads in the third part of the performance, corresponding to the history of the ballet company founded by Marie Rambert.
