Thursday 23rd November 2017 Riley Theatre

Part of European Connections

With set design by renowned visual artist Jim Hodges (Association Internationale des Critiques d’art), YAMA explores the mythology associated with mountains inspired by the pagan and animist rituals practised among the mountains of Tohoku, Japan. Created with the dancers of Scottish Dance Theatre YAMA is an awe-inspiring piece that gathers energy as it grows.

Choreographer Damien Jalet has been responsible for some of the most revered productions of the last 10 years, including Babel (Laurence Olivier award 2011) and has worked with Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and on a radical re-staging of Bolero with Marina Abramovic at the Paris Opera. Jalet’s hypnotic choreography, and the tangled ensemble of exceptional dancers leaves its tingle and stain under the skin.
