About the Show/Event
Information for Richard Alston Dance Company - Quartermark at Sadler's Wells Theatre, Inner London (Dance or ballet). 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. As Richard Alston Dance Company enters its 25th year, the acclaimed company makes the first of its final two visits to Sadler's Wells with a mixed programme featuring two new works and the revival of Proverb, one of Alston's most telling pieces, set to the vocals of Steve Reich. Alston's Brahms Hungarian uses the hugely popular Johannes Brahms music, as dancers are carried along by fast steps and an abandoned fervour, to live accompaniment from pianist Jason Ridgway. Detour, Martin Lawrance's new work, is set to Michael Gordon's pulsing Timber with the choreographer's customary quick-paced style.
