A dance-theatre piece for the whole family, Pirates! follows two friends, Daisy and Tom, as they enter a fantasy world ruled by Captain Sandy Rogers and her crew. There they go on all manner of adventures featuring zombies, strange underwater creatures and finally an all-out duel with the wicked Admiral O'Greed.
This is a boisterous show, where the involving story is told through theatre, speech and dance, the latter relying on the physical ability of SDT's dancers. Here they are in rehearsal:
Pirates! premiered at the Dundee Rep Theatre last summer, garnering a raft of four-star reviews, with The Courier describing it as 'exciting, warm-hearted and perfectly inventive'.
Pirates! has an original score by Luke Sutherland and designs by Matthias Strahm, which the Corr Blimey reviewer praised thus: 'there’s a clean beauty to Matthias Strahm’s design which allows the imagination to fill in the gaps.'
