And Now… – Plan B
Videography by Iñigo Garrido/OaksBark
And Now… has been choreographed and directed by Frank McConnell, this was the first opportunity to see plan B’s new ensemble – four of Scotland’s most electrifying dancers. Accompanied by a powerful ambient score from award-winning composer Jim Sutherland, the piece is overlaid with pulsating live music from the wonderfully, witty sax player Steve Kettley who has played with Salsa Celtica and The Cauld Blast Orchestra among others. Set design is by designer Miranda Melville who has worked in dance, theatre, opera and film while lighting design is by Jeanine Byrne, who has worked extensively across Scotland.
The piece is a witty and inventive take on what it is we want to be when we grow up. As much to do with decision making in early adulthood and the choices we don’t remember making, as with re-defining the shape of the nation in a post-referendum world.
