Award-winners Janis Claxton (choreographer) and Pippa Murphy (composer) join forces with four world-class dancers for a series of short, contemporary dance duets choreographed specifically for public spaces.

Based around the theme of love, POP-UP Duets draws on Claxton’s signature trademark of bringing high quality dance to public spaces (Chaos & Contingency, Enclosure Humans).

Working in partnership with the National Museum of Scotland, the duets will be performed throughout the museum during the month of August.


POP-UP Duets will also be 'popping up' at Dance Base on 10 and 14 August.
