New Voices – Created by some of the most exciting rising stars in the world of dance, these exclusive excerpts feature amongst others the work of James Cousins, Helen Pickett as well as fresh choreographic talent from Scottish Ballet’s own talented company of dancers. From the deliciously sensual, to high-energy and vibrant — these works, premiered to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh International Festival 2013, will leave you breathless.
Elite Syncopations – Kenneth MacMillan’s Elite Syncopations is an irresistible carnival of colourful characters. A smart, sassy and witty romp, dancers in dazzling costumes playfully flirt and vie with each other amid a whirl of 1920s dance hall glitz. Set to a series of popular ragtime tunes, the lively pace and rousing energy will send you home smiling.
