Scottish Ballet presents an extraordinary triple bill tracing a line through dance from the highly physical to the seductively graceful.

Run For It (2012)
Choreography: Martin Lawrance
Set Design: Martin Boyce
Costume design: Yumiko Takeshima
Music: John Adams

Fresh from its world premiere as part of the Cultural Olympiad this summer, Martin Lawrance’s Run For It is a high energy work inspired by the power of Olympic athletes. This dynamic piece is set to the propulsive rhythms of John Adams’ Son of Chamber Symphony and features a striking sculptural installation created by Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Boyce.

Workwithinwork (1998)
Choreography: William Forsythe
Music: Luciano Berio
Designer: Stephen Galloway

Classical discipline meets playfulness in William Forsythe’s Workwithinwork, a study of the possibilities of motion. The dancers create a breathtaking display of fascinating angles and lines, leaving traces of their movements as they go.

5 Tangos (1977)
Choreography: Hans Van Manen
Music: Astor Piazzolla

Drawing the evening to a fiery close is Hans van Manen’s 5 Tangos. Performed by Scottish Ballet for the first time, this sizzling work combines classical ballet with the passion and dramatic flourishes of the tango.
