David Dawson’s work is visceral, daring and always pushes dancers to their limits.
Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director, Christopher Hampson comments, “David always looks to push the boundaries of classical ballet, and I know that his production of an iconic story will be a thoughtful, fresh and very bold addition to our repertoire.”
Dawson’s work challenges and extends the realms of classical technique and his brave stagings have made him a choreographer in demand across the globe.
Scheduled to have its world premiere in April 2016, this new production will ensure a dynamic approach to commissioning a Swan Lake for the 21st Century.
