Win 2 tickets to see Richard Alston Dance Company @TheatreRBath
Richard Alston makes a welcome return to the Theatre Royal Bath on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th January as he celebrates half a century of making dance with a programme full of his trademark lyrical choreography performed by undoubtedly one of the world’s best dance ensembles.
The evening centres around exciting World Premieres by Richard Alston and associate choreographer Martin Lawrance. Alston’s Brahms Hungarian is set to the hugely popular Brahms pieces, featuring live solo pianist Jason Ridgway, where the dancers are carried along by fast steps and an abandoned fervour.
Detour, Lawrance’s new work, set to Michael Gordon’s pulsing Timber, will be a companion piece to a celebratory revival of the beautiful Proverb, one of Alston’s most telling choreographies set to the vocals of Steve Reich. The programme also includes a last chance to see Mid Century Modern, a journey through each decade of Alston’s career, featuring sections from Nowhere Slowly (1970), Rainbow Bandit (1977) and the joyous Signal of a Shake (2000).
Having announced that they will close in 2020, don’t miss this opportunity to see the company while you can as they bring their penultimate tour to Bath.
