Tether (Scottish Ballet)

As part of our Moving Minds Immersive Conference, attendees will see the world premiere of Tether, a specially commissioned work choreographed by Scottish Ballet First Artist Madeline Squire.

Inspired by the conference theme – an exploration of young people's mental health and wellbeing through dance – Tether explores the importance of support, relationships and human connection through movement. 

Featuring dancers from both Scottish Ballet’s main company and Youth Exchange, Tether is a celebration of the positive impact of dance on young people’s lives. 

Selkie (Scottish Ballet) 

Inspired by poet Rachel Plummer’s Selkie, this piece responds to the poem’s themes of gender and identity.  

Choreographed by Engagement Creative Director Sara Kemal and performed by Scottish Ballet Artist Rishan Benjamin, Selkie is a powerful exploration of the concepts of transformation and acceptance through movement and the body.

Witness This (Company Chameleon) 

Witness This turns the spotlight on mental health in a moving and emotional portrayal of how loved ones cope when mental health problems take hold of someone close.

Powerful and deeply personal, the piece tells the story of choreographer, Kevin Edward Turner, following his journey and struggle with mental health and the impact it had on him and his loved ones. 

A brave choreography from Company Chameleon, this must-see piece features a rich mix of dance and movement styles performed by four dancers. Athletic lifts, dynamic movements and moments of fragility and sensitivity combine to create a view of mental health, which you simply won’t forget. 

Void (Company Chameleon)

A male and female duet, Void explores the space created by the pandemic, and what has moved into that space – both good and bad.

Responding to the experiences, thoughts and feelings of the artists and a group of young people in Manchester, Void explores the rich tapestry of emotions and reactions to covid and lockdown.

With varying energy and pace, and a rainbow of different dance styles and influences, Void takes you on a journey, which creates a chance to reflect, digest and process your own thoughts and feelings during this time.

With intricate and colourful choreography, and Chameleon’s unique and athletic dance style, Void draws you in through movement, and invites you to pause, and think again about an extraordinary space in time.
