Scottish Dance Theatre’s Velvet Petal

Latest dance production from Scottish Dance Theatre brings energy and style of 1980s New York to the Hidden Door Festival, Edinburgh this summer.

Award winning dance company Scottish Dance Theatre perform their latest show Velvet Petal in Edinburgh this summer. Following rave reviews from the show’s performances in Glasgow, Mexico City and the Edinburgh Festival the company evoke the heady atmosphere of early 80s New York as audiences witness tough girls and pretty boys living life in the margins, dreaming about being at the centre.

Velvet Petal is inspired by the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly, the photography of Robert Mapplethorpe, and the transformative power of creating beauty out of whatever you can find on the bedroom floor. Choreographed by Scottish Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director Fleur Darkin and created in collaboration with this exceptional company, the Velvet Petaldancers philosophise, seduce and experiment with their bodies, clothing and ideas.
