POP-UP Duets (fragments of love)

The 5-star, award-winning POP-UP Duets (fragments of love) was hailed as the ‘choreographic standout at Edinburgh’s 2016 Festivals’ (Observer) and has gone on to achieve international acclaim including an invitation to perform at Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival where Janis Claxton Dance will be the first company from Scotland to perform since Margaret Morris’ Celtic Ballet of Scotland in 1954. In this residency the new cast members - Joanne Pirrie, Amy Hollinshead, Valerio Di Giovanni and Albert Garcia – will rehearse in preparation for extensive touring in Scotland and beyond.
