Richard Alston Dance Company 2016

  • Show Information

Fresh from celebrating its 20th Anniversary, Richard Alston Dance Company leaps into its third decade with characteristic panache, and a programme of works bearing the Alston hallmarks of musicality and grace. Associate Choreographer Martin Lawrance, creator of Madcap and Burning, brings his latest work Stronghold. Made to an intense score by Julia Wolfe, Stronghold sees all ten dancers cutting through the space with gusto. A cracker… the energy is so high you barely draw breath until it’s overTHE GUARDIAN Alston’s newest work Mazur is a tribute to the music of Chopin, particularly his Mazurkas, in which he expressed his longing for his Polish homeland. Mazur received a 5 star review in the Financial Times on its premiere in London. The evening was given wings by Mazur… a fascinating, echoing in the memory workFINANCIAL TIMESBrisk Singing celebrates the music of Jean Phillippe Rameau, genius of the French baroque. Alston has revived this uplifting dance for 8 dancers, carried along by the warmth and lightness of spirit in Rameau’s music. Alston’s response to the helium-buoyed rhythms of Rameau’s Les Boréades of 1764 is all joy.” THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
