Richard Alston Dance Company present Richard Alston's Devil in the Detail inspired by the music of Scott Joplin, Martin Lawrance's Madcap with music from New York band Bang on a Can All-Stars and Shimmer with costumes designed by Julien Macdonald. There's a pre-show talk, free to ticket-holders, at 6.30pm.
Richard Alston Dance Company's eagerly anticipated return to Edinburgh includes Alston’s latest choreography, A Ceremony of Carols.
