Richard Alston Dance Company

G Live, Guildford

Wednesday 8 March 2017, 7.30pm

Richard Alston Dance Company

The ever musical Richard Alston Dance Company returns with an all new programme of critically acclaimed work.

In Tangent , Martin Lawrance explores the vivid accents and attack of Tango. Four couples, intertwined but shifting and subtly syncopating, glide through the Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by Tango master Piazzolla, played live by Jason Ridgway on piano.

Four couples… swoon, tease and clash across the whole gamut of passions' ★★★★★ The Herald, September 2016

Chacony , Alston’s newest dance, is inspired by the powerful Chaconne of Henry Purcell. Every bit as powerful but much more stringent is the Chacony from Britten’s String Quartet No. 2, conceived as an overt tribute to Purcell. Alston juxtaposes these two pieces to make a dance that gets under the skin of the richness and nobility of Purcell, reaching into darker places before reaffirming hope for humanity.

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 hip hop and contemporary choreographer Ajani Johnson-Goffe.
