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 Red Run revived from the Company’s history, a richly diverse mix of dance and music.
