Presented as part of the Dance Base off site program at Edinburgh City Chambers, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and performed by an exceptional ensemble of female dancers and musicians, including Stephanie McMann, Laura Dannequin, Helka Kaski, Kirsty Arnold and Angharad Davies. Brocade is a poetic response to historical and contemporary notions of craft and physical work. Movement and sound are propelled along a catwalk and sonic textures resonate with the presence of women forging alliances. Somewhere between a procession and a concert, this meditative performance has the precision, strength and delicacy of an intricate piece of lace.
