Scotland's biggest contemporary dance festival returns for tenth year

Scotland's biggest contemporary dance festival returns for tenth year

Immersive sound baths, performances set on steam trains and audience-led dances will form part the programme for Scotland’s longest-running contemporary dance festival.

DanceLive, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, will see agency Citymoves take on the breathtaking challenging of hosting 61 performances and 24 events in venues across Aberdeen and Shire during the 12-day festival.

Highlights include Choreospondance, a project inviting people to describe a dance performance in a letter which will provide the inspiration for four short pieces in locations across Aberdeen using as many of the correspondences as possible.

Quadruple Bill by Tamsyn Russell and Cultured Mongrel Dance Theatre will see each artist re-author and choreograph each other’s work and audience members at Joe Wild Sex Tapes will pull the strings as they choose the soundtrack and costume for a 15 minute performance.

A fast paced blend of parkour, dance and theatre, performance Steam will be set on a steam engine and take place in front of Marischal College while immersive choral sound bath Hug will see audience members blindfolded and individually hugged by a singer in unique venue The Anatomy Rooms.

Ian Abbott, Director of Citymoves Dance Agency, said: "Since it began in 2006 the festival has grown and taken root in the heart of Aberdeen. Scotland is helping shape a number of distinctive choreographic voices and I’m delighted to present a flock of the finest here in the north east of Scotland.

"With interactive work for children, cinematic and conversational feasts alongside performances in unusual spaces, come and take shelter under the canopy of DanceLive and see the world a little differently."

DanceLive15 runs from October 9 to 20 and the full events programme can be viewed on the DanceLive website.
