Scottish Dance Theatre: Process Day & The Circle

  • Dance

Join Scotland’s leading contemporary dance company in this extraordinary programme by two of the most internationally acclaimed choreographers of our times.

Emanuel Gat’s The Circle literally emerges in front of the audience’s eyes as 11 outstanding dancers collectively weave together intricate choreographic patterns live onstage, driven by a hypnotic score by electronic guru, Squarepusher Process Day by choreographer Sharon Eyal, and music producer Gai Behar is a sensory experience that transforms the dancers into sleek, nocturnal beings veiled by haze and shadow. Pulsating movements bond bodies into clusters of shared ecstasy and capture the universal drive of striving for fulfilment and release. Our latest work is a commission by internationally acclaimed choreographer Emanuel Gat. Responding to Gat's highly distinctive practice, The Circle literally emerges in front of the audience’s eyes every night as Scottish Dance Theatre's 11 outstanding dancers collectively weave together intricate and ephemeral choreographic patterns live onstage. Focusing on the dancers' acute relationship with each other, its shifting, alternating energies create an intimate visual and emotional performance. The work is set to a hypnotic score by electronic guru, Squarepusher, and features stunning sculptural wearable art pieces by Australian designer, Thomas Bradley.
