In a dynamic yet lyrical performance inspired by true-life events, twin sisters Kristina and Sadé Alleyne explore the turmoil and strife of human emotion when faced with the prospect of incarceration.
This dark, atmospheric work that is as thrilling as it is powerful features the Alleyne sisters’ unique contemporary choreography which is infused with influences of Afro-Caribbean, hip hop, Latin, and Indian classical dance.
Co-artistic directors of Alleyne Dance, Kristina and Sadé are former athletes turned professional dancers, and have performed and taught across the UK and internationally. They performed at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics in a piece choreographed by renowned English choreographer Akram Khan.
Kristina and Sadé Alleyne said, “We were largely inspired to create this piece after an incident with one of our family members. It was also partially inspired by our visit to Alcatraz in San Francisco which sparked an interest in prison conditions and the mental states of people who are incarcerated. This is a really special work for us and we are excited to bring it to Australia for the first time.”
A Night’s Game will be performed in Australia for one season only at Riverside Theatres.
