Bob Lockyer’s 40-year career as director and producer of dance programmes for BBC television has played a huge part in developing the art form’s popularity.

To mark his 70th birthday, five of the country’s outstanding dance artists – Richard Alston, Mark Baldwin, Siobhan Davies, Wayne McGregor and Monica Mason – together present an evening of original choreography as a tribute to Bob Lockyer’s life and career.

The performance features dancers from Rambert Dance Company, Richard Alston Dance Company, Wayne McGregor | Random Dance, London Contemporary Dance School and The Royal Ballet School, and live musical accompaniment.

The programme features new works by:

  • Richard Alston
  • Mark Baldwin
  • Rob Binet (Choreographic Apprentice at The Royal Ballet, commissioned by Wayne McGregor)
  • Sebastian Goffin (graduate-year Royal Ballet School student, commissioned by Monica Mason)
  • Charlie Morrissey (commissioned by Siobhan Davies)
