Review extracts

The second half kicks off with two contrasting duets by London-based choreographers: Kim Brandstrup's DK60 and Derek Deane's Summertime. Both are mood pieces, but the first is slippery and subtle whereas the other is silken and suave. Brandstrup intrigues, Deane entertains. DK60 features Pieter Symonds and Miguel Altunaga, both members of Rambert Dance Company. She's originally from New Zealand, he is a Cuban. Their atmospheric music is a pair of sultry tracks from tango kingpin Astor Piazzolla specifically arranged for the Kronos Quartet
