Dancing feat will trip the light fantastic

by FIONA LEITH
The Scotland on Sunday

Every time they tour or perform new work - and it doesn’t take an FBI agent to establish that they are a prolific bunch - they receive fantastic box-office results, critics layer on the superlatives and audiences are left in awe.

Scottish Dance Theatre, Dundee Rep

The essence of this exploration lies, however, in the dance, as if to remind us that we are tenants in a casement of sinews, bones and vulnerable flesh.

Forty Minutes/Luxuria
By Kevin Berry for The Stage

A breathtaking double bill from Scottish Dance Theatre. Forty Minutes and Luxuria are alive with excitement, wit and invention. Work such as this will reach out and thrill anyone.

Janet Smith, the company’s artistic director, makes excellent use of her young dancers’ athleticism, balance and physical ingenuity. Her Forty Minutes takes its title from a legendary booth, in Grand Central Station, where anyone could make a 40-minute recording.

Interview with Janet Smith
By Susan Cunningham for Article19

January 25th 2005: Janet Smith is the Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre and has been for several years now. Susan Cunningham talked with Janet in December last year to find out what the company is doing and the particular challenges of running a company in Scotland.

Article19: What was your background prior to joining Scottish Dance Theatre?

Way back, I studied dance from being a child and then went to Dartington College of Arts in Devon before training in the States. When I came back to the U.K. I made solo work and toured in collaboration with a musician/performer.

Scottish Dance Theatre are in tremendous form with a triple bill that pleases and teases, but still packs some chewy, tough meat in its tasty sandwich of styles.

Scottish Dance Theatre
By Donald Hutera for The Times


THE current triple bill from Janet Smith’s engaging Dundee-based company pushes and challenges the dancers and audience alike. Despite their wildly contrasting tones and varying degrees of artistic success, each of the pieces in this marathon-like evening is a valid consideration of the possibilities for — or obstacles to — human connection.

The curtain-raiser, the SDT assistant director Michael Popper’s In Fact You Can Keep a Good Dog Down, but the Dog — Not Knowing This — Will Keep Trying to Get Up, is close to 50 minutes long. This absurdist cabaret-style exercise lives up to its tricksy title while reminding us of the “theatre” in the company name.

Where In Fact You Can ... is lightweight, Willi Dorner's succinctly named 404 is demanding.
