DIG presents the Scottish premiere of this production as Sadler returns to Tramway for the first time since GEIST, which was part of DIG 2015.

Temporary Store searches for the choreographic interface between virtual and physical reality. 

In a futuristic place of transit that could be anywhere between a pop-up store and a museum, post-human bodies act as vessels for an infinite loop of movement that seems familiar and alien at the same time. The bodies frequently speed up and slow down, robotically replaying life’s ‘best bits’ back and forth through the space. 

There is nothing to buy in the Temporary Store (the trick is in the name) but there is a coin, ´the Obol’ - once laid on ancient Greek tongues to pay the ferryman on the river Styx. We once dreamt of finding the perfect lover, but now why embrace Eros when you can trump Thanatos?

Ages 16+

Choreography – Colette Sadler
Producers – Feral


Temporary Store is funded by Creative Scotland and Senate Department for Culture and Europe Berlin. Developed in Co-production with Sophiensaele Berlin (Germany) and Bora Bora Aarhus (Denmark). Studio support from The Work Room (Glasgow).
