BALLET GOES TO THE FACTORY: ENGLAND, Marie Rambert (centre), founder and director of the Ballet Rambert, demonstrates a new step to ballet dancer Sally Gilmour, during a rehearsal in the games room of the factory hostel.
Another vibrant talent encouraged by Marie Rambert was Christopher Bruce. Pictured here in 1967, during rehearsals for Glen Tetley’s Pierrot Lunaire, Bruce became one of the world’s most respected choreographers as well as the artistic director of Ballet Rambert/Rambert Dance Company in the 1990s.
