Scottish Ballet unveils 2017-18 line-up

Scottish Ballet has announced its 2017-18 season, presenting a programme of diverse and ambitious work.

A brand new creation by Uri Ivgi and Johan Greben takes centre stage in the line-up. The world premiere from the Dutch and Israeli choreographic team, will be staged at Dance International Glasgow.

Scottish Ballet’s 2017-18 season also includes an American tour, a Stravinsky double bill, and an innovative ‘digital season’.

The project aims to explore digital as a new way to present dance. The inaugural digital season, Under the Skin, will be unveiled next spring, and marks the first time a ballet company has curated a month-long programme of bespoke projects exclusively for a digital format.

Christopher Hampson, Scottish Ballet’s CEO and artistic director, said: “The diversity of the repertoire presented in our upcoming 2017/18 season is testament to the creative vitality that lies at the heart of Scottish Ballet. I am excited to share a world first, an entirely digital season of dance, taking place in spring 2017. This ground-breaking inaugural Digital Season will explore where dance lives in a digital world through a series of innovative creative projects.”

He added: “For the 2017/18 season, I am proud to present our award-winning productions internationally alongside works created by some of the world’s greatest dance makers such as Christopher Bruce, Crystal Pite, Kenneth Macmillan and Peter Darrell.”
