Hoist the sails and batten down the hatches – Pirates!, an exciting new work from Scottish Dance Theatre’s artistic director Joan Clevillé, is setting sail for London to delight young adventurers and their families this festive season.
Following its world premiere performances at Dundee Rep Theatre in June, the show will drop anker at The Place from Saturday 16 to Sunday 24 December.
Pirates! follows best friends Tom and Daisy as they are swept away into the world of Captain Sandy Rogers and her rowdy crew. Together, they’ll face off against a horde of slimy zombies, spooky sea creatures, and even the villainous Admiral O’Greed!
In this story about identity and friendship not everything is what it seems, and the biggest treasure in the world could be right under your nose…
This exciting new production boasts original music from Luke Sutherland and a full company of dancers from Scottish Dance Theatre.
Joan Clevillé, Artistic Director at Scottish Dance Theatre, says:
“The Christmas productions at The Place have become a real landmark of the dance and festive calendar in London. I am thrilled to be presenting our family work Pirates! this Christmas, and I can’t wait to share the spirit of creative freedom and play at the heart of our story.”
