Music: Paul Anderson
Inspired by The Weatherhouse, Nan Shepherd’s masterpiece, dealing with the complex interactions of small communities, and a striking meditation on the nature of truth, the power of human longing and the mystery of being. “So Mrs Falconer lay that night, white and still, her face, beset so long with pain and darkened by failure, serene at last, and the rose from the girl in her hand.”
Music: Olafur Arnalds, Tim Minchin

Music: Julie Atherton: Weak
Lindsay is an experienced musical theatre choreographer, this is her first contemporary piece, after a weeks intensive course with Caroline Bowditch over the summer. Focusing on themes of obsession and breathing space, “Weak” is about letting your guard down and giving everything for love.
Katie - "How a piece is lit has always had an impact on me and is an area I am particularly interested in exploring and indeed experimenting with - it matters where you sit, who you look at, where the dancers are, what type of lights, whether colour is used, how different materials affect it ? I have used light as both a movement stimulus; playing with the idea of bulb fixtures, the wires that connect lights, the movement and fragility of candlelight to name but a few, and as a tool to highlight and emphasise sections within the piece in a particular way.
Thanks to Simon Gane for his advice and expertise surrounding the lighting and technical aspects of the piece. Thanks to Citymoves for your support, feedback and advice and finally, thanks to the dancers for their relentless hard work, beautiful movement and dedication to the project................... which is not over yet!"
Performers: Vince Virr and Ruth Mills.

Together In Self Scale explores our primal need for closeness and being together. It explores physical transformation and physical possibilities as a result of extreme proximity as well as the erasing of individual identity in order to find an ultimate closeness and togetherness.
'Together In Self Scale' was created during a period of research at Citymoves Dance Agency as part of their professional residency programme. The residency focused on in depth research of Jack's choreographic process and interests as well as engaging with two dancers who are based in Aberdeen/North east.
