As Richard Alston celebrates his 40th anniversary as a choreographer he talks to Judith Mackrell about his creative journey from London Contemporary Dance Theatre to Strider, and from Ballet Rambert to his current company – Richard Alston Dance Company. “I’ve never wanted to make loud statements,” he says.“What I believe in is the amazing power and complexity of the human body in steps, in rhythm and music. And that doesn’t change.” Guardian, 4 Nov 2008
