By order of the Peaky Blinders…

Adventurous, dynamic and daring dance company Rambert continue to take the world by storm as they announce the return of their popular dance theatre show, Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby.

Written by the series creator Steven Knight, with choreography and direction by Rambert’s Artistic Director, Benoit Swan Pouffer, Rambert return to our stage from 20 – 24 May 2025.

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.

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. The band of live musicians are led by Musical Director Yaron Engler with a specially commissioned score by Roman GianArthur, that includes 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.
