Since forming in 1994, Richard Alston Dance Company has been extolled for their musicality and lyricism. Over 25 years later, their final ever performances will take place at Sadler’s Wells.
Their farewell programme exemplifies Richard Alston’s commitment to new work and extraordinary music. Voices and Light Footsteps is set to music by Baroque composer Claudio Monteverdi. Shine On, uses Benjamin Britten’s On This Island, and features Alston’s frequent collaborator, the pianist Jason Ridgway, as well as singer Katherine McIndoe.
Completing the bill is Alston’s Mazur set to Frédéric Chopin, and Martin Lawrance’s latest work, A Far Cry, choreographed to Edward Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro.
