Scottish Dance Theatre is set to take over Tramway from this week, with pieces of work from near and far.

First up on the international front is KINGDOM, by Spanish choreographer Jorge Crecis, in which dancers are challenged to create a shelter using 80 bamboo sticks and 120 ropes — the theme being team spirit.

French/Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet steps up next with YAMA, inspired by his trip to tsunami-devastated Japan.

SISGO is a SDT favourite, with audience members bathed in light in order to get up close and personal, while INNOCENCE offers something for the youngest of dance fans, targeted at 0-7 years and billed as a ‘performance playroom’.
