Dance company marks 20th birthday

Richard Alston Dance Company returns to Nottingham Playhouse on Tuesday, May 12, from 8pm.

Celebrating their 20th anniversay, the company is back with a knock-out new programme showcasing Alston’s world renowned choreography. Richard Alston’s brand new piece, Nomadic, explores the meeting point between Romanian gypsy music and electronic sound, taking his famous musicality into unchartered territory.

Burning, Martin Lawrance’s latest piece, is inspired by the Dante Sonata of Franz Liszt, played live onstage.

It’s an intensely dramatic dance.
