Scottish Dance Theatre Ritualia

RITUALIA by Colette Sadler

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 set to be a thought-provoking visual feast. 


"An utterly absorbing, undeniably fresh vision of the future" The Scotsman ★★★★★

Colette’s creative team includes Dramaturg Assaf Hochman, Costume Designer Rike Zöllner, Light Designer Samuli Laine and Choreographic Assistance and artistic advice from Leah Marojevic.

Running time: 30 minutes approx.

"A visually striking, astutely clever, witty addition to their repertoire" The Herald ★★★★
