It’s 17 years after the events of 9/11, multi award-winning choreographer and BBC Radio 2 Artist in Residence Thomas Small, presents his critically acclaimed production Within This Dust. Inspired by photographer Richard Drew’s iconic images of a man falling from the World Trade Center during the attacks, Within This Dust has been presented to sell-out audiences around the world including Sao Paulo, Berlin and 9/11 Memorial & Museum at World Trade Center in NYC. This cinematic performance by Dundee based dance company Shaper/Caper, includes 3 live dance works blended with animation and survivor’s accounts, balancing beautiful movement and subtle storytelling to explore themes of, loss, survival and humanity in relation to the stark horror of that day.
