In 2012, Mark Baldwin celebrates 10 years at Rambert, the national company for contemporary dance.

To commemorate this milestone anniversary year, Baldwin creates his fifth work for the Company, What Wild Ecstasy, a contemporary response to Nijinsky’s seminal ballet L’Après-midi d’un faune.

Mark Baldwin’s modern-day take is inspired by ritualised dance gatherings: “The primal instinct of celebrating pulse and rhythm has always fascinated me. These gatherings may help bond a community, bolster its individuals and act as a way of releasing tensions; a unique way in which our species for a moment, is able to leave the world behind”.

Rambert will stage the world première of L’Après-midi d’un faune and What Wild Ecstasy at HMT in Aberdeen on Feb 15th.
