Scottish Dance Theatre is premiering a new show entitled The Life and Times next week.
The company describes the show as “a visual meditation on human fragility” that “explores how our relationship with time has changed over the last year”. It is set to “a sumptuous soundtrack of Baroque music”.
The production has been created especially for the screen and it will be broadcast to audiences in one continuous shot from Dundee Rep Theatre.
It is choreographed and directed by the Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre Joan Clevillé.
Tao-Anas Le Thanh is the digital artist for the show, while Emma Jones is responsible for lighting design, and Matthias Strahm will do costume and set design.
“It’s really a close collaboration between myself and Tao-Anas Le Thanh,” Clevillé said in a podcast. “We’re creating a world on stage where anything could happen at any point.
“We were interested in exploring the stage as a theatrical space, as a space where illusions can happen, where magic can happen.”
The show is available to watch on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 June at 7:30pm. There will be a live Q&A with the cast and creative team following Thursday’s performance.
Tickets for The Life and Times can be purchased on Dundee Rep’s website.
