Roughcut/Out of the Strong/Light Flooding into Darkened Rooms

Alston’s contemporary classic Roughcut is danced to the cascading peals of Steve Reich’s shimmering New York and Electric Counterpoints for clarinet and guitar. Out of the Strong is driven by the dramatic contrasts of Prokofiev’s sixth Piano Sonata, in which terse anger melts into sweet lyricism. Both music and dance deal with the complexity of Prokofiev’s character, which was warm and irascible by turn. Light Flooding into Darkened Rooms has a sense of intimate small space, marked out by light spilling through windows. Very much inspired by the paintings of Vermeer, the dance is accompanied by the quiet sensuality of baroque lute music.
