Scottish Dance Theatre
Based at Dundee Rep, Scottish Dance Theatre is Scotland’s national contemporary dance company. Under the artistic direction of Fleur Darkin, SDT creates highly polished productions that are led by the power of the dancing body; and is committed to broadening access to dance though bespoke creative learning workshops and activities. Commissioning choreographers from all over the world to make bold new works on a team of outstanding dancers, the company also collaborates with high calibre artists in the fields of music, design and the visual arts.
PROCESS DAY is a sensory experience, transforming SDT’s dancers into sleek, androgynous, nocturnal beings that are guided through shadows by a futuristic techno soundtrack. Created by award-winning Israeli duo Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar - choreographers of critically acclaimed works for some of the world's leading companies including Batsheva Dance, Nederlands Dans Theater and Carte Blanche - the show sophisticatedly fuses cutting-edge movement and club culture.
