Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre announce a thrilling spring 2022 season

As we enter a new year which looks to offer similar challenges for the arts industry as the one before, Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre are proud to continue to invest in high-quality, inspiring dance, theatre, music and comedy production.

Following a testing 2021 which saw Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre successfully launch their digital platform, REP STUDIOS, allowing thousands of people around the world to enjoy work produced in the heart of Tayside, and present such inspiring work as John McCann’s Wings Around Dundee, Amethyst and SINDER, both companies are thrilled to reveal 10 new productions which form their spring 2022 season and confirm that a brand new musical version of Cinderella by Lynda Radley and Michael John McCarthy will be their 2022 festive offering, following 2021’s A Christmas Carol which was met with a great reception from live and digital audiences as well as critics.

Details of the full programme is online at www.dundeerep.co.uk and among the 2022 season highlights is an appearance from Madness’ frontman Suggs who will also visit Dundee to share stories from his almost half a century long music career.

Horse McDonald also celebrates the 30th anniversary of her ground-breaking album, The Same Sky, and in comedy, the unmissable Jack Docherty and Craig Hill are back in town to put a smile on everyone’s faces.

Continuing Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre’s committment to offering high-quality cultural experiences, the Engage programme presents a range of classes for participants of all ages across theatre and dance.

This year also sees Scottish Dance Theatre strengthen its international reputation, through two digital residencies focused on emerging female voices in India, and a series of online creative dance workshops for children in collaboration with Shanghai International Dance Center, led by Glasgow-based dance artist Aya Kobayashi.

Artistic Director (Dundee Rep) & Joint-Chief Executive Andrew Panton and Executive Director & Joint-Chief Executive Liam Sinclair said: “The challenges we have faced over these last 22 months have inspired us to find new ways to invest in, create and share high-quality work with our communities. We are determined to weather the pandemic storm; continuing to adapt and deliver inspiring, impactful, and innovative work for our audiences, both in-person here in Dundee and digitally throughout the world on REP STUDIOS. Together with our audience’s support, we are excited to begin 2022 with a new and exciting season of work."
