A dance explosion - co-production by Ripple Arts and Goat Media
Structured round the 12 violin concertos of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, this 40 minute documentary weaves the documentation of the 8 week Aberdeen International Youth festival dance project with the reflections of those involved in the youth “dance explosion” in Fife and Stirling in the 1980s, and includes contributions from people across the Scottish dance sector on the legacy of these extraordinary and influential choreographers.
Choreographers Royston Maldoom and Tammy McLorg have forged an international reputation working with marginalised and disadvantaged people in areas such as Ethiopia, Peru, Palestine as well as in Europe. In 2015, the 4 Seasons youth dance project in Aberdeen brought them both back to Scotland for the first time in 30 years to work on a large scale community performance that was part of the Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme and "Get Scotland Dancing" activities.
The film is created by the award-winning creative team of Katrina McPherson (choreographer/director/producer) and Simon Fildes (editor/visual artist/producer Goat Media) with Susan Hay, Ripple Arts as the Executive Producer.
The film is available to Film Festivals or media for screening. Please get in touch if you are interested in screening it.
