Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Scottish Dance Theatre returns with an exhilarating double bill featuring a brand new creation by Glasgow-based choreographer Mele Broomes and Botis Seva’s TuTuMucky.

Blending the languages of hip-hop, ballet and contemporary dance into an explosive cocktail, TuTuMucky explores how we are shaped by the world around us and celebrates revolt against every system trying to oppress us.

The company is also delighted to introduce Mele Broomes to its followers with her first commission for a repertory company. Mele’s work Amethyst, embodies stories from the collective voice, creating visceral and sensory collaborations through her ancestral heritage. Activating social questions, remembering and celebrating.

TutuMucky | Botis Seva

“We found a beast that is compressed even in the richest of places”

Powerful and raw, TuTuMucky blends the languages of hip-hop, ballet, and contemporary dance into an explosive physical cocktail. Created by Botis Seva in 2017 and performed since then in stages the world over, TuTuMucky explores how we are shaped by the world around us, searches for peace in chaos, and celebrates revolt against every system that tries to oppress us.

Amethyst | Mele Broomes

A performance of visual and vocal vibrations that represents the stone amethyst. Responding to the texture and the guidance properties of this regal stone. This is a reflective space. Amethyst can support your journey of care and healing. Communication, loss and grief that we experience individually.

We are part of a fragmented history which holds uncertainty for many but if we listen you can hear the realness that is being shared. We are part of a fragmented history which has various perspectives, truths and discoveries. We are part of a fragmented history and our experiences shape our conversation. This is a reflective space to, listen, observe to support self-integration and self-love.
