"Rooster Video?"
 
   A friend of mine who isn't on the internet would dearly love to get hold of a video of a dance piece which she thinks is by Rambert.

The music is Mick Jagger singing "Red Rooster". Can anyone help, please? I would be so grateful for any suggestions and I know she would too.

   There's no recording of the piece performed by Rambert, but there is one by the Geneva Ballet, for whom the piece was originally choreographed.
It's available from, and indeed published by us, Dance Books Ltd.
Your friend can 'phone us on 01420 86138, or, if you want to order it on her behalf, you can do so from our web site:

www.dancebooks.co.uk

   I believe David meant there is no commericial video for this piece by Rambert for I've seen a recording over televison, together with two other pieces "Lonely Street" and "Ghost Dances" (I hope I've gotten the names right, it's been a while). Perhaps you could check with Rambert Ballet if they have it on video for release, or try requesting it from the TV station.

   Sorry Kate, but neither dance companies nor television companies make their private recordings available to the general public.

I wish!

We're talking here about what is actually available.

I think you'll find that the Ghost Dances performance you saw was by the Houston Ballet. Lonely Town, Lonely Street (choreography by Robert North) was available on a commercial video, performed by Rambert, but, in the UK at least, it's recently been deleted.

The one I've got on video from TV is definitely Rambert.

That is why it is listed as a special order. They can often get hold of deleted items from stock.

   Thanks very much to everybody for your help. Carmel, I had a look at the video clip - it was good for me, as I could see (however briefly!) what the fuss was about!

   A few months on - I've just noticed a video featuring Rooster on sale in the Sadlers Wells shop. It has presumably just appeared to go with the current Rambert run. However, its not Rambert dancing, but a Dutch company, whose name escapes me. Let me know if you want me to get further details...

   Yes please Carmel. My friend got the Geneva video which she said was good, but quite an old one (from the 60s) so not of a very high technical quality. If the Dutch one is a more recent recording I'm sure she would be interested. Could you also let me know what else (if anything) is on the video? Thank you.

(Please don't go to any trouble! I live in London and am perfectly able to call Sadlers Wells myself - so please, only if you're going there anyway.)
