Festival of the Future & Scottish Dance Theatre
Wednesday 23 Oct 2019
We were delighted that the opening night of our Autumn Tour could be tied in with the University of Dundee's Festival of the Future. Neuroscientist Ros Langston and Physical Activity Practitioner Osla Allen worked with our dancers in rehearsals on sessions that asked them to consider how they're feeling when they are both dancing and learning. Our dancer Luigi was even wired up to an EEG monitor to track his brain activity in several situations. A reading was taken at the start of the week before he had learned his new role and at the end of the week after he had learned the choreography. We also looked at his brain activity while he was watching dance or when he was running a routine through in his head.
