A Gallery ‘Event’: Richard Alston Dance Company

Friday 31 May 2013

On Wednesday 29 May, The Bride & the Bachelors came to life once again as dancers from Richard Alston Dance Company reinvoked the spirit of Merce Cunningham, performing a mixed repertoire amongst the works of his contemporaries in the Gallery.

We spoke to RADC Artistic Director and former student of Merce Cunningham, Richard Alston about Cunningham’s approach to choreography and the excitement of seeing his dancers perform Cunningham’s work, the ultimate ‘thank you’ to a choreographer and teacher who continues to influence Alston’s work.

Curated by Jeannie Steele. Presented in association with The Place, with the kind assistance of Richard Alston Dance Company and London Contemporary Dance School, and the generous support of the Merce Cunningham Trust.
