Ritualia

Scottish Dance Theatre

Scottish Dance Theatre’s Ritualia shakes tradition to its core in this bold re-imagining of Nijinska’s 1920s ballet, Les Noces. An ensemble of other-beings vogue through a wedding ceremony, donning queer wigs in a visual feast of wearable art and lush lighting set to Stravinsky’s original modernist score. As we reach the climax and witness the vows, society’s pre-assigned roles are shed in an androgynous gender utopia created by internationally celebrated choreographer Colette Sadler.
