Henri Oguike Dance Company

T01084402609
Since he burst onto the scene in 1996, Henri Oguike has become a leading force in dance. Combining technical virtuosity with the immediacy of live music, his work has won numerous awards and given a creative blood transfusion to the world of contemporary dance. By turns thundering and gentle, visceral and flirtatious, the work of this dynamic young company.

Front Line/Expression Lines/Tiger Dancing/Little Red

Front Line - Oguike's signature piece, the searing and poignant Front Line unfolds against the vivid setting of Shostakovich's 9th Quartet, played live by the Pavao Quartet. This season offers the last chance to witness this urgent and muscular sextet. Expression Lines - Set to the quietly beautiful Saharan blues of guitarist Ali Farka Toure, Expression Lines sees Oguike evoke the harsh contrasts of equatorial sand and sky in an intense yet reflective solo. Tiger Dancing - Inspired by Blake's poem The Tyger, the plucked strings and springy lines of Steve Martland's score are reflected by the dancers' sinuous and feline movements in Tiger Dancing. Little Red - Two of Vivaldi's magnificent violin concertos breathe fire into Little Red.
