In the week that marks 10 years since the first episode of Peaky Blinders aired on the BBC, The Lowry has announced that Rambert’s hit dance production, Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby, will return to Salford next year from Tuesday 22nd to Saturday 26th October 2024.
In addition, going from stage to screen, Rambert will also unveil a new dance theatre film Peaky Blinders: Rambert Dance which will be aired on the BBC later in the year, following a limited cinema release.
Inspired by the TV series produced and owned by Caryn Mandabach Productions, this explosive and exhilarating performance has been adapted for the stage by Peaky Blinders’ creator Steven Knight and choreographed and directed by Rambert’s Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer.
Opening in the trenches of Flanders, a personal story unfolds in post-war industrial Birmingham as the Shelby family navigate the decisions that determine their fate and Tommy is intoxicated by mysterious newcomer, Grace. While Tommy is building his empire, Grace is operating as an undercover agent for Special Branch on a mission to get close to the heart of Tommy’s gang. As the story unfolds, hearts are broken, and revenge is sought.
Featuring the full Rambert dance company and an iconic Peaky soundtrack from a live on-stage band, Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby showcases exhilarating and athletic dance combined with electrifying music.
Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby, is a Rambert production in association with Birmingham Hippodrome, co-produced with The Lowry.
