South America 2019
We are delighted to be taking #dundeetotheworld with a mesmerising Double Bill of TuTuMucky by Botis Seva and RITUALIA by Colette Sadler, along with the iconic musical playtime adventure, Innocence by Fleur Darkin.
Over 4 weeks we will visit and perform in four cities across three countries: Bucaramanga and Bogotá in Colombia, Santiago, Chile and Lima, Peru.
Powerful and complex, TuTuMucky explores how we’re shaped by the world around us, searches for peace in chaos, and celebrates revolt against the regiments of modern daily life. Blurring the boundaries between ballet, contemporary, and hip hop technique, this work challenges traditional convention to offer a distinctively innovative form of dance. A fresh, rhythmic, and explosive journey to places both familiar and strange set to an original musical backdrop by beat producer, Torben Lars Sylvest.
Scottish Dance Theatre's RITUALIA shakes tradition to its core in this bold re-imagining of Bronislava Nijinska's’s 1920s ballet, Les Noces. An ensemble of other-beings vogue through a wedding ceremony, donning queer wigs and wearable art, in a visual feast of lush lighting set to Stravinsky's original modernist score. As we reach the climax and witness the vows, society's pre-assigned roles are shed in an androgynous gender utopia created by internationally celebrated choreographer Colette Sadler.
A unique playroom performance, Innocence invites little ones (and their adults), to explore William Blake’s imagination and enter a realm of mystery, fun and adventure. Innocence is a magical theatrical journey led by Scottish Dance Theatre’s captivating dancers, with live music, songs, giggles and animal noises by Paul Bradley. A beautiful and engaging dance experience for young ones, their families and friends.
