Jo is a descendant of the Wiradjuri people of Western NSW in Australia. She is the founder and director of the Wagana Aboriginal Dancers and has been teaching and performing for over 25 years. Jo says: Aboriginal dance is derived and inspired by everything around us. The earth, the sky, the animals and birds, stories passed down from generation to generation for tens of thousands of years. The movement that comes when I dance feels like an imprint. It's like following a map that I unconsciously know. Imagine being a hunter or being hunted; how do you move without being seen, without being heard? Participants will warm up to the rhythm of the clap sticks, make tracks across the floor and explore contemporary Aboriginal dance.

Two compelling world premieres from international choreographers performed by Scottish Dance Theatre's exceptional dancers. Expect passion, energy and boundary-pushing dance. Yama - Damien Jalet has been responsible for some of the most revered productions of the last 10 years, including Babel (Laurence Olivier award 2011) and work with Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Chekaoiu, and a radical re-staging of Bolero with Marina Abramovich at the Paris Opera. In a UK first, Jalet works with revered whitney- exhibited visual artist Jim Hodges to create Yama. This performance created with the dancers of Scottish dance theatre takes as its starting point the mythology associated with mountains and is a mysterious yet visceral metaphor of collective ascension. Kingdom,/I> - Spanish choreographer Jorge Crecis presents his risk-taking, playful Kingdom. This piece isn't about a journey, it is a journey. Starting with 52 bamboo sticks, 120 ropes, the company of 10 dancers are challenged to become a group to effectively transform the raw materials into a 6 metre human shelter. Inspired by Cresis's participation in the Madrid Occupy movement, Kingdom is brutal, delicate, political. Age recommendation 11+Choreographer Damien Jalet (Yama).

Lay Me Down Safe is a tender foray into our human inexperience at reckoning with desire and loss. A nuanced dance built for Scottish Dance Theatre’s company members, Lay Me Down Safe collides our desire to stay connected even if it hurts against our need to let go. Drawing on the individuality of each dancer and offering up a sensuous and arresting movement language, Lay Me Down Safe explores whether desire - the experience we follow like a moth to light - ultimately keeps us safe from harm, or places us right in its path. Khaos - Benjamin Levy’s new work for SDT explores a search for balance between deprivation and excess, where the human experience is nourished by the elements that sustain us, and not starved of or suffocated by them.Choreographer Kate Weare (Lay Me Down Safe).

The Life and Times of Girl A/NQR (Not Quite Right) - T909249357

The Life and Times of Girl A - A woman is trying to tell us something important about what is happening now. What she needs is a film crew and a financier, what she's got is a stage and some dancers. A piece about moments of crisis both emotional and financial, when all we need is to use less to say more. Not Quite Right - NQR is an irreverent inquiry into the idea of ‘normality’. It examines our irrepressible eccentricities that defy attempts to fit into the mould. NQR is a chance to look at and think differently about difference. It brings artists often seen as peripheral or outsider into the mainstream of contemporary dance theatre. This work is a three way collaboration co-directed by SDT Artistic Director, Janet Smith, SDT's Dance Agent for Change, Caroline Bowditch and Marc Brew, currently Associate Director Fellow with the company. Marc and Caroline also perform in the work, along with cellist and composer Robin Mason.Choreographer Ben Duke (The Life and Times of Girl A). Design Holly Waddington (The Life and Times of Girl A).

Drift/In the Middle of the Moment/The Life and Times of Girl A - T08328828

Drift - Pushing the dancer’s to their physical limits, this powerful duet choreographed by James Wilton explores loneliness and closeness, absolute commitment and high risk trust. Sometimes the people we care about the most are the people we hurt the most. In the Middle of the Moment - A gorgeous duet about the physical restraints of a relationship, performed within a 3 metre square of light to hauntingly atmospheric classical music by Arvo Pärt and György Kurtág. The Life and Times of Girl A - Lost Dog’s award winning Ben Duke will bring a ‘highly theatrical and subversively humorous style’ (Metro) to create a new work for SDT. Combining dance, theatre and music their previous work has been much applauded. This piece is about a woman trying to tell us something important about what is happening now. What she needs is a film crew and a financier, what she's got is a stage and some dancers. This is a piece about moments of crisis both emotional and financial, when we all need to use less to say more.Choreographer James Wilton (Drift). Lighting Emma Jones (Drift).

Daddy I'm Not Well/Grace/High Land/Inside Somewhere - T0788750152

Scottish Dance Theatre's Spring tour features four dances of which at least two will be performed. Daddy I'm Not Well - A piece partly inspired by Sophocles' Oedipus The King, Aeshylus' Oresteia and paintings by Francis Bacon. A father and son look each other in the eyes. What they see is what they know. An inheritance of remembrance, revenge, regrets and reprise is ready to be passed on again? (Not suitable for under 14 years of age). Grace sifts through the deposits of second-hand learning and experience, acquired almost imperceptibly through ones life. Pondering a riddle: does borrowed adornment remove us from direct conversation with our 'true self', and is prospecting the recovery of this 'core self' attainable? High Land - You arrive in another country: Imposing landscape, a foreign language...your own. High Land takes a sometime irreverent walk through the highways and byways of a national heritage in pursuit of the spirit culture. Inside Somewhere - an exploration of feelings evoked by Chagall's paintings.Choreographer Jan De Schynkel (Daddy I'm Not Well). Choreographer Errol White (Grace). Choreographer Janet Smith (High Land). Choreographer Sean Feldman (Inside Somewhere).
