Rambert: 'The Parades Gone By' Rambert Dance Company

video clip of

The Parades Gone By

Choreography: Lindsay Kemp

Musical arrangement: Carlos Miranda
Lindsay Kemp’s ‘The Parades Gone By’
is a highly theatrical parody on the golden days of Hollywood. Set in a derelict film studio, a deranged director revisits his memories by lovingly conjuring up a galaxy of ghostly stars in a series of dream-like sequences from his films. As Valentino, Dracula, Marlene, Beauty and the Beast and Fred and Ginger, to name a but few, emerge from the darkness, their creator becomes more and more entangled in his own fantasies, until they run out of his control.
