Mark Baldwin Takes On The Messiah
Following on from Mark Baldwin's master work, Haydn's The Creation, is his current exploration of Handel's The Messiah. Mark explores themes of identity, rejection, diversity and, ultimately, triumph in unity and love.
Although still a work in progress, this work is laced with the prophet's eye commenting as only dance can on the archetypal, social and political milieu we are currently living through.
Jonathon Baker, Joshua Harriette, Sharia Johnson, Monique Jonas, and Nahum McLean, five richly talented dancers, feature in the ongoing development of this work.
Haydn: The Creation
This large scale work involving Rambert and the Rambert orchestra, the Rambert school and the BBC singers was a major collaboration, with over 70 performers all on stage, first at Garsington Opera, Wormsley, and then at Sadler's Wells in London, where this recording was made.
"I loved it; it was beautiful; it was brilliant."

The Strange Charm of Mother Nature
Does Mother Nature Dance?
Dark Arteries came about after a suggestion from composer, Gavin Higgins. He grew up
in a mining town in the Forest of Dean. The piece commemorates the miners strike of 1984 - 1985. Hard cross rhythms link the music to the strikes themselves, with references to the miners' hymn.
