An Italian in Madrid/Burning/Nomadic
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. Alston has created a new work to the sonatas of Scarlatti, a composer hugely influenced by Spanish music. An Italian in Madrid continues Alston's fascination with the fusion of different cultures and styles. Associate Choreographer Martin Lawrance's extraordinary Burning is a smouldering dance as passionate and turbulent as its music, the Dante Sonata of Franz Liszt, played live onstage. Dancers Nancy Nerantzi and Liam Riddick have been nominated for the 2015 National Dance Awards for their performances in Burning, don't miss your change to see them set the stage alight.
