The ever musical Richard Alston Dance Company returns with a programme including two works to musical scores that originate from completely different worlds.

Firstly Associate Choreographer Martin Lawrance evokes the tightly controlled but volatile energy of modern tango in his brand new piece Tangent with music by the father of Tango Nuovo Astor Piazzolla.

Then Alston's Isthmus Remix and Holderlin Fragments explore the precision in contrasting but equally spare pieces of music by Japanese composer Jo Kondo and Benjamin Britten respectively.

To close the evening Richard Alston’s Nomadic mixes Asian-influenced traditional Romany singing with the toughness of an urban beat. To explore the interaction between gypsy music and urban sound, Alston has collaborated with the choreographer Ajani Johnson-Goffe.
