Tough girls and pretty boys living life in the margins, dreaming about being at the centre. Velvet Petal explores the transformative power of beauty, created out of whatever is on the bedroom floor. The dancers experiment, seduce and philosophise through their bodies, clothing and ideas.

This fresh new work from Scottish Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director Fleur Darkin (Bristol Old Vic, Edinburgh International Festival, Royal Opera House) is inspired by the life-cycle of the monarch butterfly and Robert Mapplethorpe’s polaroids.  Set to a fresh dance-punk score arranged by Torben Lars Sylvest including music by LCD Soundsystem, Spoek Mathambo, and Abul Mogard.
