The Life and Times is an innovative hybrid performance presented simultaneously to audiences in the theatre and at home. Performed onstage and filmed live in a single, continuous shot, audiences are taken on a cinematic and surreal dance journey set to a sumptuous soundtrack of Baroque music.  

Conceived and directed by Scottish Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director Joan Clevillé, the work oscillates between playfulness and abstraction to create a visual meditation on human fragility and our relationship with time.  

This hybrid performance is presented simultaneously to audiences in the theatre auditorium and at home. When purchasing an auditorium ticket you will also receive access to the Livestream for the other performance date. There will also be the option for purchasing a livestream only ticket for those who may be unable to attend the theatre in person, to book a livestream only ticket please click here
