Scottish Dance Theatre presents an explosive programme with work by two contemporary masters at the top of their game: Sharon Eyal and Emanuel Gat.
Dundee’s very own ensemble of dancers transform into sleek, androgynous beings inhabiting dark recesses and shadows, guided by a futuristic techno soundtrack in the long-awaited return of Process Day. Emanuel Gat’s The Circle takes the audience to the edge of their seat as the dancers take split second decisions and collectively weave intricate and ephemeral patterns live onstage. Featuring lush, sculptural costumes, the piece is set to a hypnotic score by electronic guru, Squarepusher. Artistic Director Joan Clevillé tells us why this double bill is one not to be missed. Scottish Dance Theatre appointmented Joan Clevillé as Artistic Director earlier this year. The internationally renowned choreographer becomes the seventh artistic director of this award winning company.
Your imagination tingles: this is bold, breath-taking stuff performed by a company at the top of its game’
...challenges expectations, confounds interpretation and invites you to let go and enjoy
Meet the Directors
Pre-show discussion, Tue 5 Nov, 6.30pm
Join this exclusive event for dance fans in Inverness with Eden Court’s Chief Executive James Mackenzie-Blackman and Joan Clevillé, Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, Scotland’s contemporary dance company.
With more than four decades of combined experience working in dance, James and Joan will talk about the life behind the scenes of a major touring dance company. Hear first-hand from the company’s Artistic Director an introduction to the two works that Scottish Dance Theatre will present at the One Touch Theatre, and get an exclusive preview of James’ future vision for dance at Eden Court.
I am so looking forward to presenting Scottish Dance Theatre at Eden Court. I have seen the works and they really are a visceral treat for all senses. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Joan in his new role of Artistic Director and look forward to discussing his vision for the company, and my vision for Dance at Eden Court before the show. I hope lots of you can join us.
I am very excited about our conversation with James Mckenzie-Blackman. He has such an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience in touring dance across the UK and all over the world, which is exactly what Scottish Dance Theatre does! I am also looking forward to meeting dance aficionados in Inverness and the Highlands, it is such a rare opportunity to be able to meet your audience up close.
