AND by Charlotte Mclean- Dance @ Heart of Hawick

Overview

And by Charlotte Mclean.

A dance poem about wonder, worries and being alive. 

A homage to the mothers and grandmothers who have danced before us and the children we are yet to meet, And invites us to consider our view of the world, to relate, debate and dance.

Using honesty, charisma and humour, Scottish dance artist Charlotte Mclean weaves contemporary and highland dance with personal stories, political commentary and spoken word. Exploring being, belonging, friends, family, politics, climate change, independence and reproductive rights to deliver an exciting, empowering and fierce performance.

And is a homage to; the earth, the cosmos, the miniscule, the magic, the meaning, the moment, the moments before and all that’s yet to come.

‘Exhilarating … jaw droppingly bold and clever.’ ★★★★★ The Scotsman
