Catch her in Rye

What do Shostakovich, Debussy and Ravel have in common with Elbow? Lynne Page has put together an exquisite cast of performers for some specially produced dance theatre, entitled ‘Wingspan,’ to be held at Bridgepoint, the new creative arts complex in Rye, celebrating the tenacity of the human spirit in this extraordinary time. The music is an inspired combination of Shostakovich, Debussy, Ravel and Elbow, writes Chris Cormack.
