Richard Alston Dance Company

Tue 28 & Wed 29 January 2020


This outstanding company make their last visit to Exeter, celebrating 25 years with a terrific programme, packed with new work.

Brand new is Alston’s Shine On, to the song cycle by Britten and Auden On This Island (singer Katherine McIndoe, pianist Jason Ridgway); the recent Voices and Light Footsteps is inspired by the glorious Madrigals and Sinfonias of Monteverdi; A Far Cry by Martin Lawrance to an impassioned piece by Edward Elgar and the hugely popular Brahms Hungarian is back again.

The company are excited to be back – and don’t miss them because once they’re gone, they’re really gone!

“Arguably it’s one of the finest works 70-year-old Alston has created.” ⋆⋆⋆⋆
The Scotsman ( Voices and Light Footsteps)

‘Wow! a fizzing stream of solos, duets and ensembles took flight on the sumptuous surges of Elgar’s music’ ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
The Herald ( A Far Cry)

‘The moment it ended I longed to see it again- immediately.” ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
Culture Whisper ( Brahms Hungarian)
