Having been seen by more than 100,000 people during its initial run, with many of these audience members seeing dance for the first time, Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby is the company’s longest and most successful touring work.

Rambert’s thrilling stage adaptation captures the Peaky story, with stunning performances from Rambert’s dancers and an iconic soundtrack from a live on-stage band, including iconic Peaky tracks from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Radiohead, Anna Calvi, The Last Shadow Puppets, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Peaky Blinders writer and creator Steven Knight said: "I’m absolutely thrilled the Peaky/Rambert collaboration has been such a resounding success.

"So many people came to see the show and so many of them were new to live dance, which is why we all wanted to do this, so I’m delighted that the show is back on the road after popular demand."

Rambert’s Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer, who choreographed and directed the production, added: "As a company, we are so proud of the success of Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby and are excited to see its return. As a choreographer, I love that I get to tell these stories through movement, and recreate these iconic characters through dance, in collaboration with a talented creative team that includes Steven Knight.

"Rambert is one of the world’s most diverse companies of dancers, and I’m proud that we present adventurous, dynamic and daring work that inspires audiences, locally, nationally and internationally."
