Following last year's hugely-successful dance drama based on TV's Peaky Blinders, Rambert is back at Salford's Lowry (April 18-20) with Death Trap, a double-bill devised by award-winning choreographer Ben Duke.

Ben is co-founder and artistic director of Lost Dog, which won a National Dance Award for best mid-scale company. For Rambert, his piece Death Trap showcases his sense of dance theatre, while In Cerberus, dance is a matter of life or death, an adaptation of the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice and a bittersweet musing on myth and mortality.

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 the tour by Ben and the Rambert company.

He said: "I first worked with Rambert in 2017 and while we both have changed a lot since then, this history gives me a sense of partnership.

"The work I make is always inspired by, and made with, the performers. Their diversity of backgrounds means they bring a richness of experience into the space and it is their talent and generosity that really make this work." 

Rambert will return to The Lowry in the autumn with a revival of big hit Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby (October 22-26).
