Originally commissioned by Scottish Dance Theatre, 2010.
“SDT proves once again what a cosmopolitan and thought-provoking company it is” The Scotsman
NQR is an irreverent inquiry into the idea of ‘normality’. It examines our irrepressible eccentricities that defy attempts to fit into the mould. NQR is a chance to look at and think differently about difference. It brings artists often seen as peripheral or outsider into the mainstream of contemporary dance theatre.
This work is a three way collaboration co-directed by SDT Artistic Director, Janet Smith, SDT’s Dance Agent for Change, Caroline Bowditch and Marc Brew, currently Associate Director Fellow with the company. Marc and Caroline also perform in the work, along with cellist and composer Robin Mason.
