Rambert and The Royal Ballet

Aisha and Abhaya

Aisha and Abhaya is an intense, intoxicating theatrical rush, fusing dance, film, sound and music.

Rambert’s fearless dancers take centre stage performing Sharon Eyal’s fierce, pulsating choreography to an original soundtrack of driving techno from Ori Lichtik and GAIKA.

Director Kibwe Tavares brings this together with a vast film fantasy, thick with atmosphere. Sisters Aisha and Abhaya are seeking refuge from a violent homeland. We encounter them washed ashore in a strange land; a fireside ritual; Blade Runner-style cityscapes, and a huge augmented-reality Spirit.
