Part of Dance international Glasgow
Scottish Dance Theatre returns to DIG with their latest work, a commission by internationally acclaimed choreographer Emanuel Gat.
Responding to Gat's highly distinctive practice, The Circle literally emerges in front of the audience’s eyes every night as 11 outstanding dancers collectively weave together intricate and ephemeral choreographic patterns live onstage. Focusing on the dancers' acute relationship with each other, its shifting, alternating energies create an intimate visual and emotional performance. The work is set to a hypnotic score by electronic guru Squarepusher, and features stunning sculptural wearable art pieces by Australian designer, Thomas Bradley.
‘Gat’s choreography challenges expectations, confounds interpretation and invites you to let go and enjoy.’ - The Scotsman
‘Shrugs aside the comfort zone of a set choreography.’ - The Herald
