Scotland's largest international dance festival, DIG will offer a programme that breaks new ground; a clutch of new commissions, and a rich mix of established and rising stars of the dance scene. From here at home, and as far afield as France, Australia, Canada, Palestine, Belgium, Nigeria and the US, we present a cornucopia of exciting Tramway new work commissions, and Scottish & UK premieres.
'A slow motion, chaotic dance party at the end of a music festival. Neurodivergent parents exploring a post-neurodivergent future. The Royal Ballet’s first black ballet dancer, in a work exploring black masculinity in the media and homophobia. Legendary New York artist Trajal Harrell in an autobiographical solo and new work from Judson Theatre Dance icon, Deborah Hay. A raucous collision of pop and Gaelic wake culture. Joyous subversions of societal expectations of the ageing body. A Brazilian street-festival inspired Ceilidh... are just some of the highlights of Tramway’s DIG Festival 2019!'
