Scottish Dance Theatre in partnership with V&A Dundee

Scottish Dance Theatre is Scotland’s national contemporary dance company and is part of Dundee Rep Theatre. Under the direction of Fleur Darkin, the company is committed to producing excellent and daring work that is led by the power of the dancing body.

Commissioning the most exciting choreographers from all over the world, they make bold new works for their committed team of outstanding dancers while collaborating with artists of outstanding calibre in the fields of music, design and the visual arts to produce dance of the highest quality.

The company tours throughout Scotland and nationally across a range of venues and have an increasing international reputation - recent tours have included USA, China, India and many European countries. The company is a founder member of RepNet, a European network of repertory companies who meet and exchange to innovate new practice in national dance companies.

V&A at Dundee will celebrate Scotland’s design heritage past, present and future.  Through its Learning and Engagement strategy they wish to develop a strand of activity that explores innovative design with partners such as Scottish Dance Theatre.

This collaboration will be the starting point in the development, discussion and articulation of this exciting interdisciplinary programme and will allow them to explore the discipline of design for performance and costume design in relation to the rich traditions of theatre and performing arts in Scotland.
