Éowyn Emerald returns following her sold-out 2016 run with a new program showcasing her striking choreography and outstanding company of dancers. Physical, poetic, technically demanding and emotionally complex, don’t miss this exciting dance maker’s newest creation for the 2018 Fringe. “Éowyn Emerald has become a buzz name on the Fringe dance scene since her last visit and from this it’s clear why. Finding dance that is accessible, communicative and emotionally vivid while never compromising on precision and creativity is a rare treat” (The List)
Éowyn Emerald & Dancers relocated to Aberdeen, Scotland from Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2017. The company is now composed of Scottish, Canadian, and American dancers.
