DVD – Richard Alston Dance Company – All American Alston

The music for all three of the pieces on Richard Alston’s latest DVD may be ‘all American’ but the choreography isn’t: there’s nothing here to dilute Alston’s reputation as the most ‘all English’ of today’s major dancemakers…

Richard Alston Dance Company – Roughcut, Lie of the Land, A Ceremony of Carols – London

Taking notes at a performance by Richard Alston’s dancers is – for me, at least – a pointless occupation. Descriptive words and points of reference fly past in an unending stream, like Canada Geese migrating for the winter: start writing and you are never likely to stop!
