Force%20of%20Nature.jpgForce of Nature is a one-off performance by four of the World’s most inspiring improvising dance artists. It features leading figures from the field of contemporary dance: Michael Schumacher (Ballet Frankfurt, Twyla Tharp Dance); Dai Jian (Trisha Brown company); Kenzo Kusuda (Emio Greco / PC, Boukje Schweigman) and Kirstie Simson, a dynamic force in British dance who has worked with, amongst others, Steve Paxton, Nancy Stark Smith and Simone Forti. To see these legendary artists in action individually is impressive enough, but to witness them performing collectively in this unique international event will be a life-changing, once in a lifetime experience. Unmissable!
Tickets available on the door only: £9/£7

Force of Nature is a project initiated by Katrina McPherson and Kirstie Simson, co-produced by Goat & Bodysurf Scotland. Supported by Scottish Arts Council North East Arts Touring See also

The Hungarian Dance Academy mix classical and contemporary ballet, Hungarian folk and contemporary dance. And from Burundi, Akiwacu Folklore, created out of civil war, are motivated by the desire to restore lasting peace through culture and art. A high energy show that breaks down all cultural boundaries.
