Description

Ensemble is a joyous expression of togetherness involving five performers in their 30s-70s. Gather with the group on a journey that lays bare their strengths, efforts and possibilities together and aims to uplift and surprise. Expect a series of physical interactions that aim to test and challenge expectations of age in performance. Ensemble is the result of the group’s work over a six-year period to challenge their physical possibilities together. This process has built a friendship and understanding reflected in dance sections of tightly coordinated timed choreography to daring acrobatics and precarious balances. www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com
