Taliesin Live - Richard Alston Dance Company


Richard Alston  has been making dance for 50 years. He will celebrate his half-century 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  Brahm’s 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 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).

A pre-show talk with Richard Alston takes place at 6.30pm in the Mall Room at Taliesin. Pre-booking is recommended (Call the Box Office or click on the following link). More details available here.
