Aisha & Abhaya behind the scenes


Aisha & Abhaya was an ambitious new Rambert creation with director Kibwe Tavares. This was a fantistical journey into other worlds with live performance fused with film and animation performed to packed houses at the Royal Opera House's Linbury Studio. Here are its origins in the studio.

We loved working with Kibwe and you can listen to him in conversation with Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer and watch more of his film work here.
