Based in London's South Bank, Rambert is one of the world's most celebrated dance companies, creating extraordinary work which finds the sweet spot between iconoclastic and classic. Edinburgh dancer Daniel Davidson joined Rambert in 2013, having previously performed with Scottish Ballet. More recently, Davidson has emerged as a brilliant choreographer in his own right. On stage he is a mesmerising dancer, and with his elegant and statuesque presence, he has a rock star energy, seeming at times to emulate the glamour, rebellion and poise of a young David Bowie. I caught up with Davidson during a break from making creative tasks and classes with the company to enquire about his brilliant career, queer culture, and of course, Bowie.
