SERENITY, chic, restraint - such were the low-key effects achieved by New York's Lucinda Childs Dance Company, unaccountably making its London debut at the QEH on Tuesday after 21 years. Childs's signature work, 'Available Light', set to a minimalist score by John Adams (of 'Nixon in China' fame), had dancers in billowing trouser-suits, including the choreographer herself (above), making cool patterns on a two-storey stage. With its complete lack of narrative, and energy diffused somewhat over the twin levels on view, the piece left some of the audience in the dark.
