Crystal Pite – Emergence (European Premiere)
Crystal Pite is one of the most innovative and exciting choreographers today and has won four Dora Mavor Moore awards for this mesmerising work.
A riveting, dark-hued work that casts a swarming, scurrying group of dancers, insect-like, Emergence presents the full Company on stage creating spectacular formations and is set to a hypnotic electronic score by Owen Belton.
“It’s not hyperbole to call Emergence a work of genius.” ★★★★★ The Scotsman
“In "Emergence" Pite has created a piece that is unique, questioning, fascinating” Ballet-dance.com
"Pite’s Emergence is also akin to a baptism of fire, this time for the entire company" ★★★★★ The Herald
Sophie Laplane – Sibilo (World Premiere)
Scottish Ballet dancer Sophie Laplane has increasingly been making her mark on the dance world by creating delightful and unique works. Laplane’s Maze was performed as a curtain raiser for Scottish Ballet’s Autumn Season 2015 and wowed critics and audiences alike.
Laplane’s singular style mixes humour with inspiration from everyday emotions and situations. The shapes she creates for the dancers are as surprising as they are distinctive and hugely entertaining.
“a work that would be at home in any major European theatre” ★★★★★ The Scotsman
“…Laplane is clearly a major talent in the making" Sunday Herald
