Is Aishwarya dead? Or did she just exit stage left?
A meta dance comedy, full of the turbulence of life and death. Darkly funny and packed with originality.

Rambert and Ben Duke are masters of dance theatre where the dance is exceptional and the theatre delivers irresistible stories.

In Cerberus, enter a world where dance is literally a matter of life or death. This is a bittersweet musing on myth and mortality, complete with funeral couture. Goat is inspired by the music and spirit of Nina Simone, with a live on-stage band performing her iconic songs including Feelings, Feeling Good and Ain’t Got No/I Got, Life. 

Following their knock-out Peaky Blinders tour, this is your next chance to see Rambert’s brilliant and daring dancers in these two short pieces created for them by Ben Duke (of Lost Dog), known for story-telling that reveals the absurd, the savage and the funny.
