This outstanding company are celebrating 25 years of wonderful creativity with a terrific programme.

Richard Alston Dance Company embarks on its farewell tour, Final Edition, giving loyal audiences one last chance to see a live performance by what is undoubtedly one of the world’s best dance ensembles, before the company sadly cease to operate in April 2020.

Determined to go out with colours flying, Richard Alston has put together a celebration of this company’s unflagging creativity, a richly diverse mix of dance and music with two brand new works by Alston and Martin Lawrance, alongside some key works revived from the Company’s history.

Voices and Light Footsteps is the UK premiere of Alston’s latest creation. The dance was inspired by the sensuously expressive vocal madrigals and instrumental sinfonias of Claudio Monteverdi, genius of the Italian Baroque.

A Far Cry is associate choreographer Martin Lawrance’s newest creation set to the impassioned Introduction and Allegro of Edward Elgar, with costumes by Jeffrey Rogador and lighting by Zeynep Kepekli.

Mazur is a duet for two friends to the music of Chopin, whose Mazurkas are an intense outpouring of longing for his beloved homeland.

Brahms Hungarian, set to the hugely popular Brahms pieces played live by solo pianist Jason Ridgway, will culminate the evening. Created last year, this new dance proved a favourite with audiences and returns to be enjoyed one last time.
