Taking audiences on a surreal and exhilarating odyssey, Draw From Within sees Rambert’s 18 dancers rip and roll through contrasting, vivid theatrical worlds, some dream worlds, some nightmares, some sweet and funny. Together with the dancers, choreographer and cinematographer Wim Vandekeybus has created a lively reflection on a time when we’re desperate for old-fashioned physical interaction, and find ourselves wondering which way is up.
Since I’m not sure of what Vandekeybus is trying to convey here, the dance itself has to be its own reward. It’s exciting, just as the late Dame Marie Rambert would have insisted upon, but watching the writhing images, I kept wondering what Dame Marie would have thought about her ballet company having wandered so very far from her intentions.
