Northampton is the first chance on the company’s autumn tour to see up-and- coming young Kathak star Vidya Patel – a finalist in the BBC’s Young Dancer of the Year - in Alston’s much-acclaimed An Italian in Madrid. The piece is inspired by the sonatas of Scarlatti, a composer hugely influenced by Spanish music and continues Alston’s fascination with the fusion of different cultures and styles.

Associate choreographer Martin Lawrance evokes the tightly controlled but volatile energy of the modern tango in his brand new piece Tangent, with music by the father of Tango Nuevo, Astor Piazzolla.

Tickets are priced from £13 to £23 and can be booked by calling the box office on 01604 624811 or online at
