ALLEYNE DANCE (UK)
A Night’s Game
There is something very special about these British twins. Not only because the two dynamic sisters have been running their own company for five years and belong to ImPulsTanz as two of its longest-standing and beloved workshop teachers, but also because they have made it from high-performance sport to dance and from there to the Olympics: as dancers with Akram Khan, they were part of the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. They also appeared in Khan’s pieces iTOMi and Kaash, and danced in Wim Vandekeybus’s company Ultima Vez (TrapTown). Kristina and Sadé Alleyne, born to parents from Barbados, are gaining increasingly more recognition in contemporary dance. Now they present their collaborative piece A Night’s Game in the scope of ImPulsTanz at Odeon. A perfectly danced duet incorporating autobiographical elements, atmospherically charged, obscure and full of suspense.
