    Karl Jay-Lewin & Matteo Fargion
    Scotland

    A quartet of dancers, a beguiling mix of high and low art exploring the multifarious roles and movement language of the pedestrian, a prosaic and commonplace experience of the everyday as an act of beauty, meaning and gentle comedy.

    Inspired in form and structure by the sublime harmonies of JS Bach’s famous chorales and pitched into our present-day lives with just a dash of punk-ish irreverence, subtle snatches of dance and movement combine with loud titles, live music, big shoes, 18th century powder wigs, and general joyful misbehaviour.

    Choreographer, performer and presenter Karl Jay-Lewin and composer, musical director and performer Matteo Fargion have collaborated regularly since first working together in the 1990s. Their working relationship is built in part on drinking too much coffee around the kitchen table and 25 years of comparing parenting worries.
