Spring 2020

From all of us at Scottish Dance Theatre, we hope you've had a brilliant festive season and are looking forward to the year ahead - we certainly are! We kick-started 2020 in the Capital of Scotland last night bringing our striking double bill of Process Day and The Circle to Edinburgh's Festival Theatre stage for the final time. We continue into the year, premiering two new works; the first being Janine Harrington's storage for future sunsets, a response to the V&A's Up-Sticks structure as part of Dundee's Hello Robot exhibition and the second, Antigone Interrupted, Joan Clevillé's first creation as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, which is extremely exciting! This March sees the return of immersive dance experience LOOPING: Scotland Overdub, bringing with it a series of exciting and unique events here in Dundee including an invitation for artists to join us to sketch during our company class and an evening of celebrating sustainability with our pop up clothes exchange and upcycling event.
We think you'll agree, there's a lot to look forward to and we hope to see you there!

2020 also brings two new Company Dancers to Scottish Dance Theatre: João Castro and Glenda Gheller. We are excited to welcome these two artists into our versatile ensemble of dancers based here in Dundee. Read all about it here!

Antigone, Interrupted
In his first creation as Artistic Director, Joan Clevillé will present
an intimate solo work with acclaimed performer
Solène Weinachter.
Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre and storytelling,
Clevillé examines the notion of dissent in democracy,
and how the female body can be the target of oppression
but also a powerful tool for resistance.
Following the World Premiere at Perth Theatre on the 14 Feb,
we will be touring this production across Scotland and beyond!


LOOPING: Scotland Overdub
LOOPING returns to the Rep this Spring and everybody is welcome!
We invite you to join us on the dancefloor for this immersive
dance experience! LOOPING brings together the vibes of a
Brazillian street festival with the collective spirit of a Scottish ceilidh! Definitely a night out not to be missed!

Alongside LOOPING we will be hosting a Live Sketching and 
Pop Up Clothes Exchange and Upcycle event!
