Description

Looping: Scotland Overdub is a late-night dance, party and politics experience where everyone is welcome. Led by our full company of dancers and embracing the collective spirit of ceilidh dancing and Brazilian street festival vibes, Looping is an immersive performance-party with a distinctively Scottish edge. Celebrating individual freedom and the collective right of revolution through words written in collaboration with acclaimed writer Kieran Hurley and set to a fresh electronic dance score mixed live by Torben Lars Sylvest, you are invited to join us on the dance floor for a night out not to be missed!
