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.
Richard Alston Dance Company is an avidly followed UK dance company with some of the world's best contemporary dancers. It returns with a brand new Alston piece to Carnaval by Schumann played live by the fantastic pianist Jason Ridgway, a new piece by Martin Lawrance and Gypsy Mixture, a great Alston favourite. Gypsy Mixture has exhilarating dancing to the infectious music of Romanian and Macedonian gypsy bands that will lift your spirits and quicken your pulse.
