A Night’s Game

Date: 6 Aug 2019

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.

A Night’s Game is largely inspired by an incident with one of their family members, as well as partially inspired by a visit to Alcatraz which sparked an interest in prison conditions and the mental states of people who are incarcerated.

The Alleyne sisters’ unique contemporary choreography is infused with influences of Afro-Caribbean, hip hop, Latin, and Indian classical dance. Both 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.

A Night’s Game will be performed in Australia for one season only at Riverside Theatres.
