Inner Ground Dance Company, Cornwall’s leading dance company for mature dancers, will be performing Hacienda Paradise as a curtain raiser for Rambert‘s evening performance at Hall for Cornwall on Friday, March 24, at 6.30pm.

Inner Ground has commissioned Rambert to create this curtain raiser, which has been choreographed by Deborah Galloway in collaboration with Inner Ground company members. Created in response to Christopher Bruce’s Ghost Dances, the abstract dance work Hacienda Paradise calls on the supernatural, animal gods and themes of human chaos when one woman’s desire to control leads to her own downfall. Inspired by a true story from the Galapagos Island of Floreana, this paradise sets the scene for mystery, murder and self-destruction.

Inner Ground aims to stretch the boundaries of community dance for mature dancers by providing high calibre performance opportunities, regular company classes and access to high-quality workshops with visiting professional dance companies. Inner Ground welcomes people over 50, who are interested in dance and performance, including people who are new to dance as well as experienced dancers.

Rambert is Britain’s national dance company. It presents new and historic dance works to audiences in all parts of the country, performed by world-class dancers and accompanied by live music, alongside extensive outreach, education, participation and professional development work. Rambert, will present Ghost Dances and Other Works, at Hall for Cornwall on March 23 and 24.
