Scottish Dance Theatre: Process Day and The Circle
Our ensemble of exceptional dancers transform into sleek, androgynous beings inhabiting dark recesses and shadows, guided by a futuristic techno soundtrack in the return of Process Day by award-winning duo Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar. This pulsating, sensory experience is followed by Emanuel Gat’s The Circle, an explosive combination of dance and wearable art driven by a hypnotic score by electronic guru, Squarepusher, shining a light on our dancers’ acute relationships with each other.
A daring combination of cutting-edge choreography, club culture and fresh, unforgettable music, this striking new Double Bill from Scottish Dance Theatre leaves you feeling its grip long after the performance is over.
‘Your imagination tingles: this is bold, breath-taking stuff performed by a company at the top of its game’

A pre - and post-show discussion exploring brain networks and connections - Friday 18 Oct
In association with Dundee University Festival of The Future
Pre-show discussion: 19.00 - 19.30
Post-show discussion: 21.40 - 22.00
This event includes a pre- and post-show discussion with members of Scottish Dance Theatre and academics from Dundee University who have been working together to discover more about the physicality of dance and the brain activity of dancers and audience members. How do dancers process imagery in order to access different movement qualities? How does an audience have the capacity to feel what the dancers feel, empathise with them and understand their feelings? This will be a fascinating insight into the hidden connections between performers and their audience.
