Join Marc Brew Company for BREWBAND– Scotland’s new super band – that blurs boundaries and challenges people’s perceptions of identity.

Created by award-winning disabled choreographer Marc Brew, this inclusive music and dance performance brings together top Scottish rock artists Graeme Smillie (Unwinding Hours, The Vaselines, Emma Pollock, A Mote Of Dust), Jill O’Sullivan (BDY_PRTS, Sparrow And The Workshop), Peter Kelly (Galchen/The Kills/ Jonnie Common) with talented dancers Martyn Garside (San Francisco Ballet), Marta Masiero (Scottish Dance Theatre, Van Huynh) and Alice Sheppard (Axis Dance Company).

The evening will be promenade style, melding rock music with Marc Brew’s distinctive choreography, to create an exciting evening as much a music gig as it is a dance performance.

“Bursting with exciting choreography.” The Scotsman

NB: The show will be audio described and either have BSL or captions.

Marc Brew Company is committed to developing innovative collaborative work that interweaves a physicality derivative of strong contemporary dance technique. The choreographer employs the use of line and extension, with intricate folding, placement and re-placement. This complex use of the body fused with a very human content offers audiences a clear, intricate and emotive experience. The works created by the company can be thought of as a series of physical conversations, encounters and interventions that reflect what it is to be human.
