Richard Alston Dance Company 2019
Richard Alston has been making dance for 50 years. He will celebrate his half-century with a programme full of his trademark lyrical choreography performed by undoubtedly one of the world’s best dance ensembles.
The evening centres around exciting new works by Richard Alston and associate choreographer Martin Lawrance. Alston’s Brahms Hungarian is set to the hugely popular Brahms pieces, featuring live solo pianist Jason Ridgway, where the dancers are carried along by fast steps and an abandoned fervour.
Detour, Lawrance’s new work is set to Michael Gordon’s pulsing Timber with his customary fast paced style.
Proverb, one of Alston’s most telling choreographies is set to the vocals of Steve Reich.
“Alston at the top of his game”
