Over the past few years ballet and dance has done much to promote itself through cinema and TV. Now there’s also a unique online platform called The Space, a digital arts service from Arts Council England developed in tandem with the BBC, where dance is making its presence felt. Alongside works by people like Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and Russell Maliphant, Rambert Dance Company has thrown its hat into the ring with complete live recordings of Marguerite Donlon’s Labyrinth of Love, Itzik Galili’s SUB, Mark Baldwin’s What Wild Ecstasy and Rambert’s authentic-as-it-gets reading of Nijinsky’s L’Après-midi d’un faune.

Beautifully filmed at London’s Sadler’s Wells, all four Rambert pieces are available to watch free of charge until 26 March 2013. You’ll also find, amongst other things, music and theatre performances you can ogle too. This link will get you there in no time.
