We have an exciting and fun jammed month ahead for Indepen-dance with lots of events and performances to look out for……
Four Go Wild In Wellies
The sunshine might have disappeared behind the clouds but not to worry as Indepen-dance 4 are bringing their Wellies to the festival.
Four Go Wild in Wellies is a playful look at how friendships are built, broken and mended – a whimsical adventure featuring tents that have a life of their own, bobble hats and of course, lots of fun in wellies!
A show for audiences aged three to five years from Indepen-dance 4, Scotland’s inclusive professional dance company.
Created with the dancers, by director Anna Newell, composer David Goodall and choreographer Stevie Prickett, with design by Brian Hartley.
Thirty minutes of sheer delight’ ★★★★
‘Four Go Wild in Wellies’ will take place in Dancebase Venue 22 every day during the Edinburgh Fringe (Apart from Mondays) at 2.10pm and will also take place at Glasgow Green on 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th August at 10.30am as part of the #festival2018 celebrations’

Created as part of Festival 2018, Impulse Relay is an exciting new collaboration between dancers from Indepen-dance Young 1’z and musicians from Sensatronic Lab who are working together under the direction of choreographer Cheryl McChesney, along with Indepen-dance and Sensatronic artists.
The group is comprised of disabled and non-disabled young people. Using cutting-edge digital technology, the dancers’ movements create sounds, blending seamlessly with the musicians’ soundtrack.
The piece is inspired by themes of autonomy, confidence, pride and competition, all of which strongly relate to the 2018 Championships. Weaving through the mediums of dance, music, installation, physical theatre and projection, the final performance aims to present an inspirational, innovative experience to the audience, challenging accepted perceptions of dance, music, and expression.
Indepen-dance Training Day
Indepen-dance is proud to present a unique opportunity to learn from not One, but Two world-class dancers Eve Mutso and Joel Brown. We are delighted to announce this training day will take place on 28th August at the Partick Burgh Hall.
‘Eve Mutso and Joel Brown will lead a day of movement exploration based on their new duet, 111. Participants should expect a highly physical day of creative movement, partnering, learning set choreography, and discussion’
111 is a duet between dancer and wheelchair user Joel Brown (Candoco Dance and Axis Dance) and former principal ballerina Eve Mutso (Scottish Ballet). The work explores interactions between the body and physical structures – our skeletons, wheelchair(s), the set (a large scaffolding cage) – and the oscillation of power, control and vulnerability between them.
Joel and Eve collaborate in their research into movement and they share a mutual curiosity towards choreography and how apparatus affects physicality and virtuosity.
