Contemporary dance. Richard Alston, Artistic Director of The Place, the UK's leading centre for contemporary dance, is internationally recognised as one of the most influential and inspiring choreographers in British dance.
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 is set to Michael Gordon's pulsing Timber with his customary fast paced style. Proverb, one of Alston's most telling choreographies is set to the vocals of Steve Reich.
