Rejoice in the Lamb/Holderlin Fragments/New Work/Overdrive

Edinburgh gets its very own world premiere from the Richard Alston Dance Company this September. This brand new work is choreographed by Martin Lawrance ('what a force to be reckoned with he truly is' Scotsman) and is inspired by the passionate piano music of Franz Liszt. Also in this diverse programme, Alston's latest piece Rejoice in the Lamb is danced to Britten's superb setting of Christopher Smart poetry - full of religious fervour and eccentric details such as Smart's cat Jeoffry! 'Alston's choreographic response was a joyous and fitting tribute to the great composer, and sent the audience out into the dismal British weather, undeterred and smiling.' Dance Europe Alston also made Holderlin Fragments to celebrate last year's centenary of Britten, it's danced to Britten's calm setting of Friedrich H?lderlin's enigmatic lyrics. 'Its ingenuity and detail are as good as anything seen in the past decade.'The Stage In Overdrive, Alston takes up the pulsating rhythm of Terry Riley's music and runs with it to the wire. A close-meshed grid of sound sets a dance moving - shifting, changing direction, curving over and under but never pausing for breath.
