About The Flock & Moving Cloud

This Spring, Scottish Dance Theatre set the stage on fire with two of their most physically daring and dynamic works in an unforgettable evening of dance by two of the most exciting female choreographers in the European dance scene: Roser López Espinosa and Sofia Nappi

Fasten your seat belt and get ready to take off as the dancers embark on a fascinating journey inspired by the migration of birds in The Flock, then experience the fusion of contemporary dance and traditional Celtic music in Moving Cloud.  

The performance on Friday 24th May will feature a special guest appearance by folk band TRIP, as they join Scottish Dance Theatre live on stage. The audience will also enjoy an acoustic session after the performance in the Rep Café Bar.

The Flock 
by Roser López Espinosa 

Originally created for the National Dance Production of Catalonia, Roser López Espinosa’s The Flock departs from the fascinating migrations of birds. It unfolds from the desire to fly. It is an adventure to move on together and reach a shared goal: to fly through immense landscapes, through the vast open sky. This mesmerising journey returns us to the animal nature of the body. To effort, tenacity, endurance, teamwork, beauty and the spirit of freedom. An imaginary world of birds and humankind unravels, full of light and vitality. A game of ingenuity to spread our own wings. Should we leave or should we put down roots? The Flock is the big formation of birds that crosses the sky moving as one. At dusk, the sky is full of murmurations.  

A joyous and expansive act of poetic imagination.

Moving Cloud 
by Sofia Nappi 

Celtic Connections and Scottish Dance Theatre present Moving Cloud, an exhilarating meeting of contemporary dance and traditional music showcasing new choreography by internationally acclaimed choreographer Sofia Nappi, and an irresistible musical score of Scottish folk music composed by TRIP, LYRE LYRE, Cormac Byrne, Greg Lawson, Charlie Stewart and Innes White.  

A triumph of innovative collaboration. Like music bursting into life.
