Internationally celebrated Scottish Dance Theatre is embarking on an extensive tour of India and China from September to November. As Scotland’s national contemporary dance company, the ensemble will first represent its country in India as part of the second season of Impulse, a dance program that aims to foster creative exchanges between India and the United Kingdom.
As part of Impulse, the company will present a triple bill showcasing works by three highly respected choreographers, including: Revelator by former professional dancer Ruth Janssen, In This Storm by Nigerian/Walsh dancemaker Henri Oguike, and Winter, Again by radical Norwegian choreographer Jo Strømgren. The Impulse dance program will also present performances by Hofesh Schechter Company and Avant Garde Dance.
