Dudendance present Alien Species


What would a new alien species look like if plastics mutated into living beings? Dudendance bring a new site-responsive production to Aberdeen Art Gallery with spectacular costumes inspired by what ecologists call “non-native species”, some with internal skeletal structures that can be shed, shaped and transformed in tandem with the elements.

In this special promenade performance, audience groups will be guided around the Art Gallery. Meet in front of the building, and please bring a smartphone if you have one as the soundtrack will be delivered via URL. A number of headsets will be available (please supply your own if your phone does not connect via jack).

Alien Species is a collaboration between Dudendance and designer Heather MacCrimmon, musician Fiona Soe Paing and performers Alima Askew, Paul Rous, Petra Pennington, Harvey Lancaster Rous and Cathi Sell.


Please note: A number of portable players and headsets will be available for those who do not have smartphones.
