A stylish Scottish Dance Theatre Double Bill is heading for The Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock on Saturday 17 February.

Berlin based choreographer Colette Sadler re-imagines Igor Stravinsky’s Les Noces in Ritualia as Botis Seva’s TuTuMucky returns to our stages.

Created by Berlin based Scottish choreographer Colette Sadler, Ritualia takes Bronislava Nijinska's feminist cultural landmark that is Les Noces and transforms it by creating a fictional post-gender future. Described as a thought-provoking visual feast. Ritualia will see Scotland’s leading contemporary dance company team up with one of Europe’s most celebrated choreographers. Originally from Glasgow Sadler’s work has received international acclaim where her unique dance aesthetic challenges notions of contemporary performance, explores the role of the body and merges dance and visual art mediums, and takes inspiration from fashion in late 20th century pop culture.

Ritualia will be joined by Botis Seva’s TuTuMucky which returns to Scotland following rave reviews at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. TuTuMucky blurs the boundaries between dance forms. The traditional conventions of ballet, contemporary, and hip-hop technique and challenged offering offer a distinctively innovative form of dance, promising a fresh, rhythmic, and explosive journey to places both familiar and strange set to an original musical backdrop by beat producer Torben Lars Sylvest.

Speaking ahead of the Spring Tour Scottish Dance Theatre Artistic Director Fleur Darkin said: “Scottish Dance Theatre are committed to showcasing the talent of the most exciting choreographers working today. Botis Seva’s TuTuMucky has wowed audiences across the UK and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it back to Scotland for those who missed our sell out festival run.

I’m particularly excited to see Ritualia. Colette Sadler is one of the most interesting choreographers to emerge from the Scottish dance scene. Her interpretation of one of the world’s most significant ballet pieces promises to challenge, engage and provoke audiences in Scotland this coming Spring.”
