Richard Alston has been making dance for 50 years. From his first piece in swinging London in 1968, Richard
started the UK’s first independent dance company (Strider), trained with Merce Cunningham in New York in the 70’s and became Artistic Director of Rambert in the 80’s. In the 90’s he formed his own company and he will celebrate his half-century with a brand new piece for Edinburgh in 2018.
This exciting new creation will be joined by Martin Lawrance’s brand new work UNDERHAND. Lawrance moves into unfamiliar territory with contrasting music by two composers, Damian Legassick and Michael Gordon.
Fast frenetic rhythm with a cool, sombre undertone takes the piece into a world of shadow and swift dodges.
“A strikingly wise, stimulating and rewarding programme” Mary Brennan, The Herald, September 2017
