Description

Futuristic Folktales – a dance for hope scrutinises reproductive injustices by re-imagining the tale of the first womb, a folkloric creation narrative often silenced. The performers attempt to tell this momentous tale through storytelling, contemporary movement, Scottish Highland dance and acts of birth and un-birth, alongside an evocative soundscape of experimental bagpipes composed by Malin Lewis. The performance invites audiences to engage in collective resistance and seeks to further dance as a form of political protest – otherwise, why dance? Programmed by Dance Base in collaboration with Assembly. MadeInScotlandShowcase.com
