A ground-breaking collaboration with Glasgow’s Optimo Music and Brazilian dance collective 7OITO.
Scottish Dance Theatre brings the world premiere of Looping: Scotland Overdub to audiences in Wick, Mull and Dundee this summer. In each location, our full company of exceptional dancers will embark on an artistic residency with a local community cast, culminating in a final performance for all to see.
A Brazilian street festival inspired ceilidh, this premiere tour is re-imagined from the hit show Looping: Bahia Overdub by Felipe de Assis, Leonardo França and Rita Aquino (7OITO), with a distinctively Scottish edge.
With words by acclaimed writer Kieran Hurley, music by JD Twitch, costumes by Alison Brown and Timorous Beasties, lighting by Emma Jones, Looping: Scotland Overdub celebrates the cultures and heritages of Brazil and Scotland in a political dance party.
Capturing the collective spirit of ceilidh dancing and street festivals vibes, this is one show not to be missed!
