Instructions on how to watch ‘Rooms’ once you’ve purchased your ticket

 

17 dancers, 36 scenes, 100 characters…

Like passing-by miniature scenes through a train window, or cycling through the streets and peering into apartments, we all love to glimpse into other lives, and the homes they’re lived out in. 

Rambert’s brilliant dancers invite us into wildly different worlds and surprising set-ups. People trying to live their lives, navigate dilemmas, swerve mishaps and survive their mini-dramas.

Rooms is a daftly ambitious dance-theatre-film that is performed live. It’s sometimes absurd it’s oftentimes funny. It’s beautiful and it’s peculiar, and occasionally a little bit sad.  Or maybe it’s all perfectly normal.

 

Unlike most livestreams, this was not a static recording or a glitchy presentation over Zoom. Watching it felt more like watching a movie, immersive and absorbing, yet easily the most technically sophisticated live dance production I’ve seen since theaters closed

  • Digital Livestream

This performance is LIVE

This performance is happening in real time, it is not pre-recorded. You don’t have to leave your home but while you take your seat on your sofa, Rambert’s dancers (and cameras) will be warming up and preparing to perform. We’d hate you to be late and it be over.

Please note that alongside 12pm and 8pm performances, the performance schedule intentionally includes one 1am performance for the convenience of Rambert’s audiences in the Americas. You’re more welcome to book this time if you so choose, but just be aware that the time isn’t an error – this performance will take place after midnight!

Good to know: safety of Rambert dancers

Before the creation process, the entire Rambert company, artists, production and technical teams were tested for COVID. Having been given the all-clear, dancers were allocated to bubbles (some already share a household). Rambert have gone over and above required guidelines to make sure teams are kept safe and well and conditions are carefully controlled within Rambert’s own studio environment. Testing takes place twice weekly; breaks are staggered; we follow markings on the floor; the washrooms even have names on. These measures mean that when we perform the show, you will see some dancers in close contact but they will have been working solely with dancers in this bubble.
