To mark the tenth anniversary of Mark Baldwin’s leadership of Rambert Dance Company, the company is launching an appeal to support the final stages of its fundraising campaign to complete its new headquarters on London’s South Bank.
Rambert hopes its new home, which is scheduled to open in 2013, will “safeguard Rambert’s future and that of contemporary dance. As a centre for choreography and music for dance, it will cement Rambert’s status as one of the world’s great dance companies, enable it to improve its already excellent artistic standards, be a powerhouse for new choreography and the centre for dance and music in the UK.” The new building is designed by the architects Allies and Morrison.
Baldwin took up his post as director of Rambert on November 1, 2002, and the company is offering anyone who makes a £5 donation on November 1, 2012, entry into a special prize draw to win a VIP trip to visit Rambert Dance Company’s new headquarters during the opening celebrations next year.
To donate, text RAMBERT to 70300. Your £5 donation will be deducted from your mobile phone credit, or added to your monthly bill. Standard text rate applies. Rambert Dance Company will receive 100 per cent of your donation, and will contact you via text message if you are one of the three winners. Travel and accommodation are not included.
