Scottish Dance Theatre presents
Thu 20 – Sat 22 February 2014 at 8pm
“One of the most personable and versatile ensembles in British Dance” The Times
Scottish Dance Theatre presents two compelling works from international choreographers performed by the company’s exceptional dancers. Expect passion, energy and boundary-pushing dance.
Yama by Damien Jalet
Damien 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. In a UK first, Jalet collaborates on set design with American Visual Artist Jim Hodges (Association Internationale des Critiques d’art). Created with the dancers of Scottish Dance Theatre, Yama explores the mythology associated with mountains to produce a visceral and compelling work of collective ascension.
Kingdom by Jorge Crecis
Spanish choreographer Jorge Crecis presents his risk-taking, playful Kingdom. Starting with 80 bamboo sticks and 120 ropes, the company of 10 dancers are challenged to transform the raw materials into a 6 metre human shelter. With an original score by The Artist, Kingdom is a political work inspired by Crecis's participation in the Madrid Occupy movement.
