This October, we're delighted to welcome PRIME back to Scotland with their piece Carry on Dancing.
Having performed at Pavilion Dance South West in Bournemouth earlier this month, our elders company are set to take to the stage in Aberdeen and Inverness.
Joining Quicksilver from Citymoves Dance Agency and the Eden Court performance group for older dancers, PRIME will perform their poignant and eclectic show as part of Luminate: Scotland’s creative ageing festival.
Created by Steinvor Palsson, Carry on Dancing is set to the original recordings of memorable songs from the 20s and 30s sung by the legendary Marlene Dietrich. Inspired by her late father's favourite artist, Carry On Dancing is a personal tribute to him and to the courageous, powerful and completely remarkable women who are PRIME.
Classic songs are interpreted through movement, dance and occasional text, with an ensemble of nine women in their sixties and beyond. Beautifully lit and costumed by Jeanine Byrne, the piece evokes a bygone era of glamour, mystery, seduction and dark humour.
Carry On Dancing is a personal tribute to him and to the courageous, powerful and completely remarkable women who are PRIME. Alongside this, PRIME will also perform a new hip hop piece Auld's Cool, choreographed especially for the company by Ashley Jack.
