November 2017  Lovely to see these “Goat” from Rambert reviews coming in:

“Then we have Goat…. A slinky and seductive dessert. Choreographer Ben Duke has created a work that is part theatre, part gig, part performance poetry as well as being unquestionably dance…..this is dance that grabs you by the shoulders, refuses to let you look away, and leaves you with a mischievous wink, wishing for more.” The Wee review

“The final performance, Goat, is a multimedia showstopper. It is hilarious, disturbing and breathtakingly brilliant…..”

“However, by far the standout piece of the evening was Goat… it was both humorous and heart breaking at the same time. a refreshing introduction to the many ways dance can surprise the audience and push itself to new limits…”

Catch the show in London on the 21st to 25th November.

September 2017    Ben is delighted to be back in the Rambert studios co-creating a new work: “Goat”. Darkly funny and deeply moving, “Goat” dissects the pleasure and pain of performing. The work is inspired by the music and spirit of Nina Simone, with a selection of her best-loved songs performed live on stage by jazz singer Nia Lynn. For more info and tickets see
