The Fringe 2019
A late-night dance experience awaits you at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Mon 19 - Sat 24 August
ZOO Southside | Venue 82
RITUALIA shakes tradition to its core in this bold re-imagining of Nijinska's’s 1920s ballet, Les Noces. An ensemble of other-beings vogue through a wedding ceremony, donning queer wigs, in a visual feast of wearable art and 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.
LOOPING: Scotland Overdub (10.30pm)
LOOPING: Scotland Overdub is a late-night dance, party, and politics experience where everyone is welcome. Led by our full company of dancers and embracing the collective spirit of ceilidh dancing and Brazilian street festivals vibes, LOOPING is an immersive performance-party with a distinctively Scottish edge. Celebrating individual freedom and the collective right of revolution through text produced in collaboration with acclaimed writer Kieran Hurley and set to a fresh electronic dance score mixed live by Torben Lars Sylvest, you are invited to join us on the dance floor for a night out not to be missed!
