TUTUMUCKY BY BOTIS SEVA
Powerful and complex, TuTuMucky explores how we’re shaped by the world around us, searches for peace in chaos and celebrates revolt against social order, hierarchies, and the regiments of modern daily life. Blurring the boundaries between ballet, contemporary, and hip hop technique, this new 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.
"....determinedly confrontational and challenging" The Herald ★★★★
"...controlled fury that reaches inside the dance to create ferociously agitated movement"The Stage ★★★★
RITUALIA BY COLETTE SADLER
Berlin-based Scottish choreographer Colette Sadler is 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.
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.
This exciting double-bill from Scottish Dance Theatre pairs TuTuMucky by Botis Seva, a fresh voice in British dance alongside the world premiere of RITUALIA by Colette Sadler a brand new commission. Together they promise an evening of high-energy, futuristic, and engaging work.
