The Devil in the Detail/Bussing/Around the Hunnisuccle/Madcap

This brand new commission from the San Francisco based Columbia Foundation continues Alston's long-held fascination with the music of Japanese composerJo Kondo. Buzzing Round the Hunnisuccle contrasts three short Kondo compositions. The rapid light rhythms of Isthmus (which was choreographed in 2012), the brisk and asymmetric An Elder's Hocket, and the calm-hushed chords of Hunnisuccle have inspired Alston to create movement of nimble and breathtaking precision. The evening also contains the newly revived and substantially revised The Devil in the Detail, a joyous and effervescent dance to Scott Joplin's rags. Also in the programme is Madcap, Martin Lawrance's highly acclaimed choreography to the explosive music of Julia Wolfe, a dark and highly physical tour-de-force.
