  2. Variety is the spice of life for Vince

    We’ve just finished the penultimate week before we premiere Whiteout as part of DIG and then embark on sharing its life force with folk around Scotland! It’s the first Barrowland Ballet piece made for a conventional proscenium arch theatre for a while, in Tiger and Tiger Tale we are surrounded in a cage, The River […]

  3. Kai-Wen, life with the Whiteout team

    I am Kai- Wen Chuang, one of the dance performers in Whiteout, the new production of Barrowland Ballet. My highlight of last week was another dance artist, Jade’s birthday party in Grosvenor Café at Saturday night. Lots of folks, including her family, friends and the Whiteout team were there, gathered together from different places. People […]

  4. A breath of fresh air from Nandi

    Here we are, knee deep into our fifth week of rehearsals for Barrowland Ballets new piece Whiteout. Our bodies are working, creation is flowing, excitement is brewing for a premier on April 29th and 30th at Tramway, and I couldn’t be happier to be here. What a breath of fresh air it has been to […]

  5. Introducing Sean Graham

Our professional work is directly linked to our participatory work, and the two are inter-dependent with one inspiring the other.

  8. A few words from Luke Sutherland, composer for Whiteout

    Three weeks to go. Since the score for Whiteout is to be pre-recorded, I’m spending more time in the studio away from the rehearsal space, suffering a kind of separation anxiety. We generated raw material for the show through hours of improvisation during which the dividing lines between (live) music and movement blurred. I was […]

  9. Dancing up a storm

    It’s week three into the creation period of our new piece Whiteout and we are quite literally dancing up a storm – it’s been a whirlwind of devising, setting the structure of the show, making a film, getting to know the new dancers/making new friends and getting back into an upbeat routine of morning class and full dancing […]
