Damien Jalet’s The Ferryman

Gilles Delmas

Scottish Dance Theatre and Dundee Contemporary Arts are thrilled to collaborate on an exclusive offering of dance and film by celebrated French and Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet. Exploring the animistic roots of rituals, dance and sculpture, Jalet’s work can be seen in YAMA, performed by Scottish Dance Theatre at Dundee Rep Theatre on Wed 15 November, and in dance documentary The Ferryman. This is a unique opportunity to experience the visually lush perspective of an artist exploring connected themes across two distinct art forms.

 "A visceral and poetic film..."

Narrated by performance artist Marina Abramović, The Ferryman is a visceral and poetic film, rich with metaphors, which sees Jalet perform the role of a half-deer, half-hunter character. The ancestral and complex relationship between men and nature is portrayed through a series of graphic ceremonies and contemporary dance performances.
