A mixed programme of works by Alston and his Associate Choreographer, Martin Lawrance. The modern tango of Tangent is set to music by Astor Piazzolla, whilst the dramatic Stronghold has a score by Julia Wolfe. Mazur is danced to live Chopin mazurkas and An Italian In Madrid is inspired by the sonatas of Scarlatti.
From the deeply moving to the highly irreverent, Mark Morris' work is always surprising and stimulating, incorporating the music entirely into the movement of the dancers' bodies. With music composed by Lou Harrison, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Samuel Barber.
