Richard Alston Dance Company 2018
Richard Alston Dance Company is an avidly followed UK dance company with some of the world’s finest dancers. It returns with a full programme of works including a brand new piece by Associate Choreographer Martin Lawrance.
The programme also includes Carnaval a brand new piece by Alston performed to Schumann’s music of the same name. These evocative piano pieces describe different aspects of Schumann’s complicated personality. The music is played live by outstanding pianist Jason Ridgway and the costumes are by BAFTA Award winning designer Fotini Dimou.
Finally, Gypsy Mixture, a great Alston favourite has been newly revived for the first time in a decade. With exhilarating dancing to the infectious music of Romanian and Macedonian gypsy bands this dance will lift your spirits and quicken your pulse.
“As tellingly musical as any choreographer alive.”
