Following its world premiere in Dundee in 2014, Damien Jalet’s critically acclaimed YAMA returns as a brand new full length work.
YAMA explores the mythology associated with mountains inspired by the pagan and animist rituals practiced among the mountains of Tohoku, Japan. Created with the dancers of Scottish Dance Theatre, YAMA is an awe-inspiring piece that gathers energy as it grows with echoes of shamanic strangeness. Jalet's hypnotic choreography, and the tangled ensemble of exceptional dancers leaves a tingle and stain under the skin.
Profound, powerful and hugely demanding..
★★★★ The Herald
An extraordinarily clever work with each theatrical element perfectly balanced
★★★★★ The Skinny
A force to be reckoned with…..nothing short of stunning
