'Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing there is a field. I will meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about' - Rumi

Ray is Scottish Dance Theatre’s latest creation by Brussels-based choreographer Meytal Blanaru. The work explores the phenomena of Emergence, as it ventures on a quest for a deep, collective, shared physical experience, one that tries to bridge between bodies and sweep people far beyond the intellect’s words, ideas and constructions, into a space where people can potentially meet, in a different way.

Creates a bond between audience and performers stronger than I have felt for a long time

– Dancing Times 

It’s an ephemeral hour that grows from nothing, glows and evaporates. A lovely bunch of people; a lovely moment in time.

– The Guardian
