Travel Tip: Dance in Scotland

EDINBURGH  •  Festival Theatre  •  Ongoing

Nederlands Dans Theaterís premier company presents two works by choreographer Jirí Kylián. In Tar and Feathers, a pianist improvises around Mozartís music at a grand piano perching on metre-high legs. Against this  musical back drop, six dancers perform intriguing, mysterious movement in a surreal black and white world.

Wings of Wax is set to music of Bach and Philip Glass. A complete tree hangs upside down above the action, as eight dancers emerge from the blackness, only to dissolve back into it again.

Drawn onward by Lightfoot-Leon sees the dancers faced with a massive door that periodically opens then clangs shut.

Completing the evening is Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leónís Signing Off, a ballet about saying goodbye and set to Philip Glassí Concerto for violin and orchestra.
