The ever-musical Richard Alston Dance Company return to Royal & Derngate with a full programme that includes a great Alston favourite, Gypsy Mixture. This is newly revived for the first time in a decade, and is set to music tracks from Electric Gypsyland – a 21st century take on traditional Balkan folk music.
Exhilarating dancing to the infectious music of Romanian and Macedonian gypsy bands will lift your spirits and quicken your pulse in this performance from Richard Alston’s outstanding, acclaimed dancers. Join Richard ahead of the performance on Thu 5 October when there will be a free pre-show talk.
“SOMETIMES DANCE FILLS THE EYES WITH TEARS, CHANGES OUR BREATHING OR MAKES US LAUGH… THE DANCERS OF THE RICHARD ALSTON DANCE COMPANY... CAUSED A GAMUT OF EMOTION, JUST BY TAKING US TO THE HEART OF DANCE ITSELF”
