Preview: Scottish Ballet – Up Close

Scottish Ballet – Up Close

Andy Ross

Company to tour Scotland with line-up including Elite Syncopations and choreography from Helen Pickett

We’re used to big productions on big stages from our national ballet company, but the Up Close tour is a chance for audiences across the country to see what Scottish ballet is really made of. Performed at close quarters, the lineup includes works by some of today’s hottest choreographic talent (Helen Pickett, James Cousins and Martin Lawrance), members of the company (Sophie Laplane, Hope Muir) and the utterly joyful Elite Syncopations from the late, great Sir Kenneth MacMillan.

Tramway, Glasgow, Fri 24 & Sat 25 Oct and touring.

Scottish Ballet: Up Close

New Voices features exclusive excerpts from works by James Cousins and Helen Pickett, as well as fresh choreography from Scottish Ballet’s own company of dancers. Elite Syncopations is a sassy whirl of 1920s dance hall glitz from Kenneth MacMillan.
