Thu 20 Feb to Sun 23 Feb

Final Edition: Montclair State University

Richard Alston Dance Company’s Final Edition tour is part of our last season, our 25th no less before we sadly cease to operate in April 2020. We are determined to go out with colours flying so have put together a celebration of this company’s unflagging creativity, up to the minute works by Alston and Martin Lawrance and also key works revived from the Company’s history, a richly diverse mix of dance and music. We’re excited – but don’t miss us on this tour because afterwards we really are gone! 

Alston’s new Voices and Light Footsteps, to the sensuously expressive music of Monteverdi, genius of the Baroque.

Shine On, to the song cycle by Britten and Auden On This Island featuring live singer Katherine McIndoe and pianist Jason Ridgway.

Detour is an exciting, speedy dance by Martin Lawrance set to Michael Gordon’s resonant score Timber.

Brahms Hungarian, set to the hugely popular Brahms pieces, featuring pianist Jason Ridgway.

‘The moment it ended I longed to see it again – immediately.’
