Comissioned by Scottish Dance Theatre Creative Learning
Music: diverse tunes from the 1950s
Dancer: Elisabeth Schilling
The solo piece Zwischenzeiten [In-Between-Times] was commissioned by Scottish Dance Theatre’s Creative Learning for Dundee Dance Trail 2013. In this playful and humorous piece, a somehow indefinite and unworldly being finds itself transported into the 1950s (which provided the festival’s theme). There it is transformed, through dance and music, into a glamorous lady of that epoch. As a miniature time-travel epic, the piece captures the spirit of that time in virtuosic and expansive sequences, but also allows their specific quirks to shine through in curiously alien and broken movements.
