★★★★★ ‘Echoing cheers for Alston and his dancers’ Financial Times, (on the premiere of An Italian in Madrid) March 2016

Alston’s latest work is inspired by the sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti, a composer hugely influenced by Spanish music. An Italian in Madrid continues Alston’s fascination with the fusion of different cultures and styles and to explore this, Alston has invited BBC Young Dancer grand finalist Vidya Patel to join his company for this exciting new work.

★★★★ ‘A marriage made in heaven’ Observer, (on the premiere of An Italian in Madrid) March 2016

In Tangent, Martin Lawrance explores the vivid accents and attack of Tango. Four couples, intertwined but shifting and subtly syncopating, glide through the Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by Tango master Piazzolla, played live by Jason Ridgway on piano. The costumes for Tangent are designed by sharp young Filipino fashion designer Jeffrey Rogador.
