After the performance the audience will be invited to step into the digital shoes of the dancers and follow the movements of the on-screen dance troupe.

The project is funded by an Artist Commission from the Scotland and Medicine Partnership for the Human Race exhibition. Additional funding has been provided by Creative Scotland and Edinburgh College of Art.

Cost: £1.50 friends/£3.00 full price
