Richard Alston Dance Company - Water Music/Soda Lake/Lachrymae/Strange Company archiveContemporary 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. Water Music - danced to the hugely famous suite by Handel, carries the company along on a wave of crisp melody an dspeedy rhythm. A project cherished by the choreographer for some time, his recent discovery of Jordi Savall's robust and vigorous interpretation kick-started Alston into action. Soda Lake made by Alston when he was director of Rambert Dance Company, is framed by Nigel Hall's arresting sculpture, and remarkable for its sense of calm, stillness alternating with flurries of activity. Lachrymae is a study of sorrow, reflecting the warmth and compassion of Britten's achingly beautiful music for viola and string orchestra. Strange Company The disturbed world of the composer Robert Schumann animates Alston's second new creation Strange Company. Swirling with romantic fervour but haunted by the menacing characters dreamed up in the composer's troubled imagination, this is indeed music possessed.
Performers Jason Ridgway (piano - Strange Company).
