Explosive new choreography from Andy Howitt, set in a courtroom and debating reasonable doubt and the concept of guilt.
Guilty? Not Guilty? 12 Dancers / Deliberance is a new dance work, choreographed by Andy Howitt, with an original score composed by Stephen Deazley and played live. Set in a jury room, 12 strangers come together and during the course of one night slowly and sometimes explosively begin to express their opinions. Is there reasonable doubt? How can they work through conflict to build consensus?
Featuring an all star cast of 12 of the leading male dancers from Scotland on stage, including Angus Balbernie, Norman Douglas, Alan Greig, Matthew Hawkins, Arron Jefferies, Tony Mills, Peter Royston and Ian Spink.
The first half of the show will feature new work Andy has created in Aberdeen over the past year, including short pieces for AB+ and Aberdeen’s Olympic Torch celebrations.
12 Dancers / Deliberance is a Citymoves Dance Agency and Aberdeen Performing Arts co-production. Citymoves gratefully acknowledges financial support from Creative Scotland and the PRS for Music Foundation.
