'Still' shows war on the dance floor

Dundee-based Smallpetitklein promise intense physical performance

The brutality and devastating impact of war was the inspiration behind Smallpetitklein’s Fringe show. A double-bill featuring contemporary dance work Stiller by award-winning choreographer Thomas Small, and short film Unmoving, Still doesn’t pull any punches. ‘It’s a powerful work that convulses with a brutish and disruptive force that electrifies audiences,’ says Small. ‘Stiller is a dance that detonates with breakneck speed, power and shattering emotion.’

Dundee-based Smallpetitklein is known for its incredibly physical performances which are heavily rooted in dance theatre. By blending intense movement with subtle, emotive storytelling, Small hopes the audience will be both excited and moved by what he terms ‘an exhilarating and stirring show full of furious energy and gorgeous dancing’.
