Scottish Ballet Digital Season at The Fruitmarket Gallery

SHORT FILMS AND LIVE PERFORMANCES OF DANCE, POETRY AND MUSIC – PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE FRUITMARKET GALLERY

In a special event to conclude the Digital Season, join Scottish Ballet at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh on Fri 14 June to see live performances of works by Digital Artist in Residence Zachary Eastwood-Bloom, short films by Eve McConnachie and Jess & Morgs, poetry by Rhona Warwick Paterson, and music by Edinburgh based artist Callum Easter.

A sculptor based in Glasgow, Zachary has been collaborating with artists, choreographers, composers and dancers to create Technology//Mythology//Allegory; a series of three new works that have drawn on tools including motion capture and 3D rendering.

Each work will exist in the real world as a live performance and in the virtual world as a film, drawing on tools including motion capture and 3D rendering. Zachary has long been drawn to Greek mythology, and each work is inspired by a well known story:

The Fates

The Three Graces

Choreographed by Scottish Ballet First Artist Madeline Squire, music by Kinetic Alchemy.

Prometheus and Epimetheus
