Richard Alston Dance Season

This Summer, in conjunction with his company’s visit to Royal & Derngate, we are thrilled that Richard Alston has agreed to curate a season of dance films in Errol Flynn Filmhouse, as well as hosting a post-film Q and A.

Richard has often drawn inspiration from his enjoyment of dance on film, particularly his love of Fred Astaire:

“I also was (and still am) crazy about Fred Astaire, the most quirky, elegant tap dancer there has ever been.  When I studied with Merce (Cunningham) in New York I went to see a Fred and Ginger movie every week, for two years! They were such a magically attuned pair that I never tired of seeing them dance together” You can hear more at:  http://everything-theatre.co.uk/2015/06/richard-alston-dance-company-looking-to-the-future.html#prettyPhoto.

We will announce full details of this exciting season in the coming months, alongside linked ticket offers and discounts for Royal & Derngate ticket holders.
