Welcome to YDance’s Online Performances

The Dearly Departed by Alan Greig & The Otherside by Steven Martin– Project Y 2017
Available until Thursday 1st October

The next event in the YDance online performance programme is a double bill from Project Y 2017.  The Dearly Departed by Alan Grieg and The Otherside by Steven Martin will be available until Thursday 1st October.

The Dearly Departed

The Dearly Departed explores the question: what happens to us after we die? The dance looks at the various and often conflicting religious beliefs held around the world. Originally performed by X Factor Dance Company in 2002, this will be a unique and completely reworked version, created for the Project Y Company. The soundtrack comprises original music by Glasgow based composer Tom Murray and utilises a specially recorded soundtrack of spoken words, using interviews with people across a wide range of ages, cultures and personal religious viewpoints. The dance, although dealing with a serious subject matter, also uses humour and will be dramatic, stylish, thought provoking and accessible.

The Otherside

The Otherside deals with an overwhelming pressure that encapsulates the space, holding the dancers in place with fear and shame. The only way is to break the cycle of control and combat these feelings from inside. The dancers will be pushed to their physical and emotional limits as they experience the simple, innate response to their need for hope and freedom.
