In her Fringe debut, outstanding choreographer Katie Armstrong presents SKETCHES/GLISK as part of the Made in Scotland Showcase. This impressive double bill created in collaboration with multi award winning composer and DJ Mariam Rezaei, features a string quintet, a DJ and four dancers. Described as a “beautiful whirlwind”(The Skinny) SKETCHES is a quirky reimagining of Bach’s famous Violin Concerto in A Minor. Encompassing experimental turntablism, acoustic piano, dance and visual art, GLISK is a work inspired by the dramatic landscapes around Aberdeen and the North East. This show has been programmed by Dance Base in collaboration with Assembly.


Elisabetta Bisaro, Head of International Development, La Brqueterie and one of Made in Scotland 2023 panellists, talks about the reasons why Sketches / Glisk was selected to be a part of the MiS showcase.
