Acclaimed dance piece for children coming to the Highlands and Islands

10 Apr 2013 in Argyll & the Islands, Dance & Drama, Highland, Moray

Scottish Dance Theatre is set to delight young audiences in April and May with What on Earth!?, its acclaimed dance work for children aged 5 years and upwards.

Combining dance and animation with a soundtrack from around the world, SDT takes its young audience on a curious night time journey full of surprise encounters with strange flora and fauna. A dynamic and playful adventure What on Earth!? is a wonderful experience for all the family where you can enter a world of dreams about planet earth … where friendships are made … and battles are won and lost.

It is choreographed by Scottish Dance Theatre’s Assistant Director, Sally Owens, and former Artistic Director, Janet Smith. The animation is created by Graeme Hawkins (aka retchy). One parent described the piece as “breathtaking and beautiful…my daughter enjoyed the humour and silliness throughout”.
