Scottish Dance Theatre - YAMA


Wed 15 November
YAMA-17-1

Following its debut in 2014, Damien Jalet’s critically acclaimed YAMA returns as a brand new full length work.


YAMA explores the mythology associated with mountains inspired by the pagan and animist rituals practised among the mountains of Tohoku, Japan. Created with the dancers of Scottish Dance Theatre YAMA is an awe-inspiring piece that gathers energy as it grows. Jalet has been responsible for some of the most revered productions of the last 10 years, including Babel (Laurence Olivier award 2011) and work with Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and a radical re-staging of Bolero with Marina Abramovic at the Paris Opera. Jalet's hypnotic choreography, and the tangled ensemble of exceptional dancers leaves its tingle and stain under the skin.
