Fresh from celebrating its 20th Anniversary, Richard Alston Dance Company jumps into its third decade with characteristic panache, and a programme of works bearing the Alston hallmarks of musicality and grace.
Associate Choreographer Martin Lawrance, creator of Madcap and Burning, brings his latest work Stronghold. Made to an intense score by Julia Wolfe, Stronghold sees all ten dancers cutting through the space with gusto.
