Summary

Richard Alston and his dancers have been credited with finding the ultimate synthesis between music and movement. They perform choreograph that is as affecting and striking as it is subtle and beautiful.

In a must-see collaboration for Britten’s centenary year, they dance four pieces, including two world premieres, set to the composer’s music performed live by Britten Sinfonia.

Produced by the Barbican as part of the Barbican Britten Festival.
