Velvet Petal By Fleur Darkin

Performance & Dance

Velvet Petal by Scottish Dance Theatre

This intimate dance work explores the transformative power of beauty, created out of whatever is on the bedroom floor.

Bringing us into a space of fluid identity, the dancers experiment, seduce and philosophise through their bodies, and clothing.

Velvet Petal is inspired by the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly and Robert Mapplethorpe’s polaroids and is set to a dance-punk score arranged by Torben Lars Sylvest including music by LCD Soundsystem, Spoek Mathambo, and Four Tet.

★★★★★ Lively, playful and gutsy and guaranteed to put a spring in your step

★★★★ A truly compelling piece, exquisitely performed
