Chasing Ghosts

Chasing Ghosts - Diana Loosmore (2007)

Created by Scottish Ballet soloist Diana Loosmore, Chasing Ghosts is a fascinating study of human relationships, hypnotic, luminous and spectral, with stunning lighting and costumes galvanising the piece with a ghostly, metallic shimmer.

Set to Ian Simmonds’ pulsating score, the seven dancers make contact; movements are shadowed and reflected, leaving traces as the pursuit develops.

Choreography – Diana Loosmore
Music – Ian Simmonds

What the press said

"Rhythmic and fluid, this was a hypnotic piece... uplifting."
- Perthshire Advertiser  

"Loosmore proved she was more than worthy of the prize. Having seven of Scottish Ballet's most interesting dancers at her disposal didn't hurt, of course. Between them,they gave Loosmore's choreography a cool, sophisticated edge."
- The Herald

"This somewhat otherworldly atmosphere was also heightened by Morag McKerrell's imaginative costume designs and the shadowed and reflected movements of the dancers as they silently haunted the stage."
- St Andrews Citizen

"An enthusiastic visual feast"
- Dance Expression

"See it and believe in magic"
- The Extra
