Dusk by Lothian Youth Dance Company
Dusk is the product of a week-long workshop with LYDC’s dancers and choreographer Bridie Gane. It draws on the music of Wake Up Calls, an album by Cosmo Sheldrake which uses recordings of bird song featured on the red and amber lists of endangered British birds. The dancers explored the mystery and distinctiveness of different bird songs through movement, translating the essence of each bird’s song into physical form. Dusk explores the interdependency between the human and the natural worlds in the context of our rapidly changing climate.

Eaten by Mamoru Iriguchi
What if your food started talking back? Meet Lionel the lion. He’s just eaten a human called Mamoru for lunch. Being very hungry, Lionel hasn’t chewed his food, so Mamoru is still alive and very well in his stomach, and now wants to say hello. A strange friendship between the eater and the eaten starts to grow. Meanwhile, Lionel’s breakfast wants to say hello… from his bottom!
Nominated for Best Production for Children and Young People at the 2018 Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS Awards), Eaten is a show for everyone aged 6+ about food, eating and being eaten.
