The ever musical Richard Alston Dance Company returns with a programme including two works to musical scores that originate from completely different worlds.

Firstly Associate Choreographer Martin Lawrance evokes the tightly controlled but volatile energy of modern tango in his brand new piece Tangent with music by the father of Tango Nuovo Astor Piazzolla.

★★★★★ 'Echoing cheers for Alston and his dancers' Financial Times, March 2016

To close the evening Richard Alston’s Nomadic mixes Asian-influenced traditional Romany singing with the toughness of an urban beat. To explore the interaction between gypsy music and urban sound, Alston has collaborated with the choreographer Ajani Johnson-Goffe in a career first.

“Nomadic shines out like a beacon… recognisably Alston but possesses new ingredients in choreography that articulates the music superbly in a spicy blend of movement…It’s a tremendous ensemble piece” London Dance (Nomadic), Jan 2015
