For its autumn tour, David Hughes Dance looks back to its roots, with works by Matthew Bourne, Robert Cohan and Tanja Liedtke, and forwards with Walking Shadow, a new commission from Cathy Marston.
Under the title “Something Old, Something New…” the company will engage with some of the key mentors and collaborators of its founder, the dancer David M Hughes. It features Spitfire, Bourne’s first major hit, Cohan’s Adagietto and Liedtke’s Imploded – Une Rêverie Romantique, a quirky tribute to Les Sylphides. Marston’s Walking Shadow is inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
The programme had its world premiere in Aberdeen as part of the DANCELIVE season, and will tour Scotland throughout November. See www.davidhughesdance.co.uk for tour dates.
