In new collaboration, Artistic Director Jen Wren will explore interlacing of physical and vocal languages with music, song, language and dance artists from Spanish and Hebridean backgrounds in an initial research process towards new work. Jen will spend the week with Kathleen Mcinnes, Ivan and Adela Ramos, in an exciting process of play and exploration of what can be done when song and language from traditional Gael and Flamenco backgrounds unite and how this can influence the development new choreographic vocabulary.

Kathleen McInnes: Gaelic Singer/vocalist

Ivan Ramos: Flamenco Singer/vocalist

Adela Ramos: Flamenco dance artist



Tuesday 27 June | 10:00-11:30 | Company Class | Free | BOOK HERE

Jen will lead a workshop/class based around her practice of blending Scottish Step dance with Flamenco footwork and movement – sharing new phrases created to a jig time. This can be done with or without shoes.

Come and learn a little of each style before we blend them together and perhaps even throw in some contemporary moves along the way.


Friday 30 June | 16:00-17:00 | Residency Sharing | Free | BOOK HERE

The week will culminate in an artist led conversation surrounding ideas we played with and what was discovered during the week. Come and meet the artists, hear what we have been exploring and ask any questions. This conversation may or may not include demonstrations (to be decided).
