What if, when we die, we don't need to balance our accounts? What if, instead, we need to make a dance? A dance of death. Tonight, your hosts, Lucy and Jim, attempt to do just that. Join them as they try and fail and laugh and kick and scream, all in an effort to make the perfect totentanz. An in-real-life show about death. 

On arrival, you'll head up to the Upper Gallery for a drink and a photographic exhibition by Brian Hartley, made in collaboration with members of the Dundee Rep Theatre and Scottish Dance Theatre community. You'll then join Jim and Lucy for the performance of Totentanz. This is a first draft, a work-in-progress, so you are also invited to stick around and share your thoughts, helping the company to develop the show in the months and years to come.

Audience notes
The performance contains loud music and references to death. 

Tickets for Friday's performance include entry to the exhibition opening (after Friday's opening, the exhibition is free and open to all until Saturday 16 October). 

Following each performance, the company would like to invite audiences to join them in the upper gallery for an informal conversation around the project.  

Recommended for ages 12+

Totentanz was commissioned by Dance Base Scotland, Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre and Tramway as part of #LoveDanceScotland. Supported by the Scottish Government’s Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund through Creative Scotland.
