Event Description : "Forces of Nature" 
Scottish Dance Theatre 2014.

Scottish Dance Theatre is part of Dundee Rep Theatre which collaborates with both international and UK-based choreographers of outstanding calibre to produce high quality dance that is thought provoking and holds resonance in people’s lives. Scottish Dance 

Theatre contribute to a wealth of work made in Scotland and is highly regarded as an international level.

“Scottish Dance Theatre’s strategic mission is to inspire Scotland and the world through the creation and presentation of world-class dance performance, and to pioneer a unique education model that harnesses the company as a research engine for dance, embracing 
our home in Dundee and our relationship with worldwide audiences.”

“We were overwhelmed with the responses of the Indian audiences when we first toured the country in 2012. We are thrilled to be back in India again, with great energy and excitement to promote artistic dialogue and cultural exchange between Scotland and India through our performances,” said Fleur Darkin, Artistic Director, Scottish Dance Theatre.

Scottish Dance Theatre, Scotland’s principal contemporary dance company, returns to India with a triple bill from three highly respected choreographers- 

Winter, Again Choreographed by Jo Strømgren
Duration: 31 minutes
Radical Norwegian choreographer Jo Strømgren mixes beautifully poised dance with all means necessary to tell the story of a community struggling to hide their dark misdemeanours under winter’s snowy blanket. Punctuated with the devastatingly fragile 
songs of Schubert’s Eine Winterreise, Scottish Dance Theatre takes us on a journey through the cycle of the coldest, darkest season. A renowned choreographer, director and playwright, Jo’s work is sculpted by an attitude to dance that is wild and rigorous.

“Dramatic, grotesque, bleakly comic and delivered with theatrical and technical prowess.” (The Herald Scotland).

Revelator, Choreographed by Ruth Janssen 
Duration:  9 minutes
Janssen’s powerfully intimate duet reveals the frailties and the absurdities of humans as they pursue enduring relationships through the seasons of life. Drawing on her extensive career as a dancer, Janssen presents delicate moments and subtle gestures that build to a graceful and effective emotional whole.

“Ruth Janssen’s dancing has the depth of poetry.” (The Stage)

In This Storm Choreographed by Henri Oguike
Duration: 30 minutes
Edinburgh International Festival 2013 commissioned Henri Oguike to make the original, shorter version of this piece, which received great critical acclaim and was described by The Guardian as

“a turbulent clamour of bells, voices and drums, which Oguike translates into layers of urgently questioning gestures and roiling, combative moves.” Oguike is ‘one of the brightest hopes of British Contemporary dance’ (The Daily Telegraph) Expect ‘’thrilling musicality’ (The Herald) and ‘fierce precision’(The Observer) Exploring the meeting point between cultures, Henri Oguike creates a brand new work for Scottish Dance Theatre’s powerful 
dancers. In This Storm sees Oguike draw from his intense musicality to create a work of exquisite mystery that pushes the dancers to achieve a balance between speed, tenderness and an earthiness, almost tribal in nature.
