RITUALIA announced as part of #EdShowcase 2019
Thursday 11 Apr 2019
Today, RITUALIA by Colette Sadler was announced as part of the Edinburgh Showcase 2019 programme.
Says Joan Clevillé, Scottish Dance Theatre's Artistic Director: “We are delighted to be part of this year’s British Council Edinburgh Showcase with the work of Colette Sadler, an internationally acclaimed Scottish choreographer based in Berlin.
Colette’s bold and thought-provoking work reflects the international and outward-looking profile of the company and the Scottish dance and theatre sector. The British Council Edinburgh Showcase will offer Scottish Dance Theatre an invaluable platform to forge new connections with delegates and promoters from across the globe, build bridges for cultural exchange and create opportunities for learning and collaboration.
Today, this invitation to look and reach beyond our borders feels more relevant than ever, and we look forward to welcoming the World in Edinburgh”.
Colette Sadler was invited to work with Scottish Dance Theatre in a reimagining of Igor Stravinsky's Les Noces, originally premiered in Paris in 1923 by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Sadler's interpretation of Bronislava Nijinska's feminist cultural landmark transforms the gender thematics of the original ballet by introducing the idea of androgyny as its point of departure. Evoking and celebrating the notion of hybridity, exploring iconic artificiality, presentation and fashion, RITUALIA is a thought-provoking visual feast.
