Following on the popular success of its latest production, Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby, Rambert returns to Salford and The Lowry this Spring Season with Death Trap, a brilliant evening of dance devised by Ben Duke (of Lost Dog).

Death Trap comes to The Lowry from 18th – 20th April. Bringing together Goat (2017) and Cerberus (2022), Death Trap continues Rambert’s focus on storytelling and characters, and features awe inspiring performances by Rambert’s diverse company of dancers, with live music by an on-stage band.

Death Trap is infused with Ben Duke’s irresistible, stylish and accessible sense of dance theatre, is darkly funny, and packed with originality.

In Cerberus, we enter a world where dance is literally a matter of life or death. An ingenious adaptation of the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice, it is a bittersweet musing on myth and mortality, complete with funeral couture. Goat is inspired by the spirit of Nina Simone, with iconic songs including Feelings, Feeling Good and Ain’t Got No / I Got, Life.

Both pieces are recreated for this tour by Ben Duke and Rambert dancers Adél Bálint, Angélique Blasco, Simone Damberg Würtz, Max Day, Conor Kerrigan, Joseph Kudra, Naya Lovell, Musa Motha, Aishwarya Raut, Antonello Sangirardi, Alex Soulliere, Dylan Tedaldi, Jonathan Wade, Archie White and Seren Williams.

Helen Shute, CEO | Executive Producer of Rambert says: We’re thrilled to be taking Rambert back on the road. And this new evening in collaboration with Ben Duke is a great opportunity to connect with new and returning audiences across the country and beyond.

Benoit Swan Pouffer, Artistic Director of Rambert says: We’re very happy to welcome Ben Duke back in our studios to revisit Goat and Cerberus together. Our dancers come from varied backgrounds, bringing with them a breadth of skills shaped by different experiences, and Ben’s unique sense of theatre allows them to explore characterisation through storytelling in their individual and collective performance.
