This exciting double-bill from Scottish Dance Theatre pairs ‘Dreamers’, by critically acclaimed choreographer Anton Lachky, with a new work by Botis Seva, a fresh new voice in British dance. Together they promise an evening of high energy, humorous, and engaging work . ‘Dreamers’ is a major hit with young people and across a range of audiences.
Dreamers by Anton Lachky
DREAMERS are people who dare to dream while not being asleep. Slovakian choreographer Anton Lachky, a resident of Brussels and part of the explosive Belgian contemporary dance scene, takes pleasure in making sense from nonsense and exploring links between reality and surrealism. His work is developed around the unique physicality of the performers, highlights the beauty and power of the moving body and intertwines it with his quirky and humorous style.
“Smart, witty and oh so fast.”
The Scotsman ★★★★
“Technicolour bounce and a larky comic energy akin to cartoon capers.”
The Herald ★★★★
TuTuMucky by Botis Seva
In a world full of order how do we find peace in chaos? London-based choreographer Botis Seva comes to Scottish Dance Theatre fresh from his stint at Sadler’s Wells. He is an artist who is known for tackling social and political issues with strength and humour, working with his company Far From the Norm since 2010. Using different physical foundations to create ‘post hip-hop theatre’ with a strong contemporary sensibility, expect this new work to be fresh, rhythmic, and explosive.
The programme will also include ‘Where I Belonged’, a short work choreographed by Steven Martin and performed by Scottish Dance Theatre’s Youth Dance Company.
This group meets weekly at Dundee Rep and is open to young people aged 12 – 18. The participants have danced at Theatre Royal, Glasgow and Macrobert, Stirling in addition to Dundee Rep.
“Masses of potential […]Botis Seva’s political, theatrical and experimental take on hip hop might just make him the next big thing.”
