Rambert presents 'Aisha and Abhaya' at the Royal & Derngate theatre.

Rambert’s fearless dancers take centre stage performing Sharon Eyal’s fierce, pulsating choreography to an original soundtrack of driving techno from Ori Lichtik and GAIKA.

Director Kibwe Tavares brings this together with a vast film fantasy, thick with atmosphere.

Sisters Aisha and Abhaya are seeking refuge from a violent homeland. We encounter them washed ashore in a strange land; a fireside ritual; Blade Runner-style cityscapes, and a huge augmented-reality Spirit.

A one-of-a-kind theatrical experience and a feast for the senses, Aisha and Abhaya is a co-production between Rambert and The Royal Ballet, in association with BBC Films and Robin Saunders.

Rambert take to the Derngate stage with this ground-breaking performance on Tuesday, January 18 and Wednesday, January 19 at 7.30pm. Tickets for Aisha and Abhaya are priced from £18 and can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811 or online at www.royalandderngate.co.uk.
