One of the most innovative dance companies in Scotland is the Curious Seat Field – Something for the Future Now, a standard outdoor dance that was physically conceived in the distant world and presented on August 22 and 29 as part of the Edinburgh International Festival.
Against the backdrop of the magnificent Arthurs chair, the artists react to the surrounding landscape and to each other: after a series of movements and live sound music, they now dance together. In the beautiful setting of Holyrood Park, with ample space for everyone, Field is an invitation to immerse yourself in this sophisticated work and share a sense of community and celebration. It is a 4 hour show and the audience can come and go as they please during the show.
The domain was created in collaboration with Edinburgh community dancers and related artists Karen Tennant and Sky Reynolds to facilitate outdoor training. Performance creates space for movement and connection in a physically distant environment. This trail that always expands will be beautiful and exciting when you meet safely outside in the summer. Play with space and distance so that the terrain and elements interact to create continuous motion scores that form the framework for the operation.
