CCN Ballet de Lorraine and Compagnie Amala Dianor – The Future Bursts In bill – London

★★★★✰   The title of the latest triple bill in the Linbury studio theatre is taken from The Observer’s dance critic’s review of the Merce Cunningham Company’s arrival in Britain in 1964.

Ballet de Lorraine – Devoted, HOK Solo Pour Ensemble, Sounddance – New York

★★★✰✰   This winter, New York is getting to see more Merce Cunningham than it has in years, thanks to visits from various European companies. It is a sad fact that Europe has always been more supportive of Cunningham than the choreographer’s own country.

This programme might also be viewed as demonstrating a particular curve in the formal journey of contemporary dance, albeit one taken in reverse and with an interloper for the sake of contrast.
