FASTER goes to Tokyo

Faster which Becs designed for Birmingham Royal Ballet has finished its second UK tour, and will be produced in Tokyo by National Ballet of Japan 

Faster premiered in June 2012 to national critical acclaim:‘The work looks fantastic, with the 21 dancers dressed in sports kit to which designer Becs Andrews has added a sharp, knowing twist of glamour’ Laura Thomson, Telegraph 

‘Different physical disciplines are allusively coded in Becs Andrews’ form-flattering costumes: metallic hues of silver and gold, white, grey and black; and later magenta, purple, and lime green. She avoids literalism in dressing the dancers but conveys the provenance of the sports they represent supremely well.’  Mike Dixon, Dance Europe
