At New Wimbledon Theatre on Saturday 9th February at 7.30pm the Company is delighted to be presenting the world premiere of Alston's newest work Buzzing Round the Hunisuccle.
Buzzing Round the Hunisuccle contrasts three short Jo Kondo compositions. The rapid light rhythms of Isthmus (which was choreographed in 2012), the brisk and asymmetric An Elder's Hocket, and the calm-hushed chords of Hunisuccle have inspired Alston to create movement of nimble and breathtaking precision.
The performance will also include the newly revived and substantially revised The Devil in the Detail, inspired by the music of ‘King of Ragtime‘ Scott Joplin. Madcap completes the programme - Martin Lawrances's latest work for the Company to the explosive music of Julia Wolfe, a dark and highly physical tour-de-force. Click here to see a preview of The Devil in the Detail and here for Madcap.
Don't miss out on the only opportunity to see Alston's repertoire performed in London this tour. You can book tickets via the New Wimbledon Theatre box office on 0844 871 7646 or book online here. There will be a pre-show talk with Richard Alston at 6.30pm, please ask the box office for further details.

NORTHERN SINFONIA + KATHRYN TICKELL
Queen Elizabeth Hall
Sunday 3 February, 3pm
Tickets from £9
Kathryn Tickell and Northern Sinfonia explore this phenomenon how folk music inspired many composers in the early 20th century. Taking us on a musical journey through the UK passing through Spain, Australia, America and Armenia with the music of Falla, Grainger, Ives, Komitas and others.
Northern Sinfonia is one of the UK’s most exciting orchestras who have performed all over Europe. For this special gig they collaborate with Kathryn Tickell - the foremost champion of the Northumbrian pipes. Also a composer, performer and successful recording artist Tickell’s work is deeply rooted in the landscape and people of Northumbria.
Kathryn also works collaboratively across many genres, making her work contemporary and exciting. She first took up the Northumbrian smallpipes at the age of nine, learning in the traditional way from shepherd musicians in outlying hill farms near her home. All the elements of landscape, weather and stories of the people that lived and worked there were part of her childhood. Kathryn’s personal evocation of this is heard through the traditional tunes and songs that she brings to audiences all over the world. She has released 14 of her own albums to date and has also recorded and performed with Sting, The Chieftains, The Penguin Café Orchestra, Evelyn Glennie, Andy Sheppard and many others.
As the Artistic Director of Folkworks, the folk development agency for the north east, Kathryn provides artistic leadership and inspiration for Folkworks programmes and is also the founder and Director of Folkestra, the north east’s dynamic young folk ensemble.
