LOOPING: Scotland Overdub at Scottish Dance Theatre

 

Scottish Dance Theatre brings the world premiere of Looping: Scotland Overdub to audiences in Dundee this summer, Friday 10 August at 8pm. The full company of exceptional dancers will embark on an artistic residency with a local community cast (ASPIRE Dance Schools, and the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance at Dundee & Angus College), culminating in a final performance for all to see.

A Brazilian street festival-inspired ceilidh, this premiere tour is re-imagined from the hit show Looping: Bahia Overdub by Felipe de Assis, Leonardo França and Rita Aquino (7OITO), with a distinctively Scottish edge.

With words by acclaimed writer Kieran Hurley, music by JD Twitch, costumes by Alison Brown and Timorous Beasties, lighting by Emma Jones, Looping: Scotland Overdub celebrates the cultures and heritages of Brazil and Scotland in a political dance party.

Capturing the collective spirit of ceilidh dancing and street festivals vibes, this is one show not to be missed! A ground-breaking collaboration with Glasgow’s Optimo Records and Brazilian dance collective 7OITO.
