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, with new works by Alston and by 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!
Red Run: Heiner Goebbel’s powerful music, evokes a terrain of shadows across which the dancers travel in nomadic clusters.
Alston’s new Voices and Light Footsteps, to the sensuously expressive music of Monteverdi, genius of the Baroque.
Mazur, a duet to Chopin played live, an intense outpouring of longing for his beloved homeland.
A Far Cry, Martin Lawrance’s new dance set to Elgar’s impassioned Introduction & Allegro.
Shine On, to the song cycle by Britten and Auden On This Island featuring live singer Katherine McIndoe and pianist Jason Ridgway.
‘The moment it ended I longed to see it again – immediately.’
