Threaded Fine

2022 – ongoing

Choreographer Rosemary Lee has brought together a cast of dancers from across Scotland and ranging in age from 9-70+ years to create a new site-specific version of her Threaded Fine project.

One after the other, 24 dancers perform the same short solo accompanied by a continually looping song composed by Isaac Lee-Kronick and performed live by Jamie McCarthy. Beginning with the youngest and ending with the eldest, each dancer brings their own unique quality to this repeating, almost ritualistic performance.

Framed by two very particular outdoor locations –  The Dancing Green, Findhorn Ecovillage and Magdalen Green in the heart of Dundee – audiences can come and go or stay for the five-hour duration of these two unique presentations.

With its moments of intensity and stillness, Threaded Fine draws on our inescapable connections with space and time and the cyclical rhythms of nature that shape us.

Following previous iterations in England (First Light Festival, Lowestoft) and Malta (ZfinMalta National Dance Company), Rosemary has recruited 24 performers including six dancers from Scottish Dance Theatre to develop this unique reworking of Threaded Fine.

Commissioned by Dance North in partnership with Scottish Dance Theatre and supported by Creative Scotland.
