Goat

For Rambert
Choreographed by Ben Duke

Goat is a new dance theatre creation for Rambert. Darkly funny and deeply moving, it 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 – including Feeling Good, Ain’t Got No/I Got Life and Feelings – performed live by an onstage band led by jazz singer Nia Lynn. Goat premiered at Festival Theatre, Edinburgh, 26 October 2017 and was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2018 in the Best New Dance Production Category.
