CHOICE THE CRITICS: DANCE
Friday 13 October 1995
Dance Umbrella spreads its shade over strange bedfellows Laurie Booth and Emilyn Claid whose solo works form a double-bill at London's ICA (Tue- Wed). Booth, who specialises in that beguiling oxymoron Structured Improvisation, will present his latest work Condition Red, danced to the viola of Bill Hawkes against a background of red satin. Emilyn Claid plays a time-travelling "hermaphrodyke" in Fifi Le Flesh
Phoenix Dance Company (right) finally hits London with its latest work Movement in 8 which is performed to Orphy Robinson's jazz and features his band and a group of a cappella artists live on stage. Sadler's Wells 17-21 Oct
Another girl a long way from home is featured in English National Ballet's Alice which premieres at Southampton Mayflower (Thur-Sat, 01703 711811). This rendering of Carroll is choreographed by Derek Deane, the sets and costumes are by Sue "Rocky Horror" Blane and the music is by Carl Davis after Tchaikovsky.
