Gathered Together 2022: Thursday 7 July
Part of Gathered Together, a four-day festival of performance from some of the world’s leading inclusive dance organisations, presented by Indepen-dance. The festival also includes a series of workshops. If you are interested in participating visit their website to see the full programme of events.
This evening's programme includes:
Curtis and Co [Germany]
A mixed-abled, site-specific dance production by choreographer Susanna Curtis. Three dancers and an acrobat explore their own borders. What physical, psychological, geographical, social and political borders have confronted them in their lives? Which ones could they overcome and where did they fail? The performers react to the (un)limited space.
Barrowland Ballet’s Wolfpack [Scotland]
Inspired by Kurt Jooss’s “The Green Table” - depicting politicians arguing over power while the ice is melting - Monument explores the contradiction between political power and sincerity in people.
Birds of Paradise
Glitch in the System
Traversing the multiverse, Glitch emerges between the binary oppositions humanity creates. A Glitch in the system, a break from ‘reality’, a space between good and evil. Created by Birds of Paradise Young Artist Andrew Robertson, with his unmistakable freestyle choreography and gamer aesthetic, this is part of BOP’s new disabled-centred digital arts platform ‘Locked World’.
INSPIRE Adult Performance Group [Scotland]
Protect Our Planet
Protect Our Planet takes us on an emotional journey. Soft flowing and energetic dance moves are created to help express our need to work together and help heal our broken world.
Exploring Borders has been made possible with support from the International Offices of the Cities of Glasgow and Nuremberg.
ACCESS: The programme will be BSL interpreted and Audio Described
RUNNING TIME: 2 hours 30 minutes including interval
