Richard Alston Dance Company — An Italian in Madrid
This quadruple bill includes Richard Alston’s world premiere, An Italian in Madrid, set to Scarlatti’s sonatas. The influence of flamenco on Scarlatti continues Alston’s fascination with the fusion of different cultures and styles and to explore this, Alston has invited BBC Young Dancer grand finalist Vidya Patel to join his company for this exciting new dance.
Mazur is a duet for two men, set to the lilting Mazurkas of Chopin. Both Scarlatti and Chopin are played live by pianist Jason Ridgway.
Martin Lawrance’s brand-new Stronghold features an intense score by Julia Wolfe. Finally, Brisk Singing is one of Alston’s most joyous creations.
