A welcome return for this charming programme that celebrates the beauty, wisdom and experience of older dancers. Among the cast are father and daughter duo Dominique and Thusnelda Mercy performing a duet by Pascal Merighi. The great Ana Laguna appears in Mats Ek’s Axe, and there are works by William Forsythe and Shobana Jeyasingh, as well as a piece based on the choreography of London Contemporary Dance Theatre founder Robert Cohan. • At Sadler’s Wells, London, 23-24 June. Box office 020-7863 8000.
Richard Alston has been choreographing for nearly half a century, and as the rest of the dance world has opened itself up to dramaturgs and digital technology, he’s remained faithful to the idea that choreography need only be about music and steps. Often he’s appeared marginalised, out of touch with the times. Yet in his latest work, Chacony, he proves that a combination of pure movement and music can be no less emotionally charged than the most highly produced dance-theatre.
Ever since Isadora Duncan denounced ballet as sterile gymnastics, a long line of choreographers have used her metaphor, deploying images of regimented classical dancers to flag up themes of conformity and restraint. Botis Seva is the latest. In TuTuMucky, his first piece for Scottish Dance Theatre, the radical hip-hop choreographer works hard to charge that idea with a brooding, dystopian logic of his own.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
