40 Minutes

40 Minutes

A collaboration with choreographer and Artistic Director at the Scottish Dance Theatre (1997- 2012), Janet Smith.

40 Minutes was inspired by Jeanette Winterson’s ‘Lighthousekeeping’ where there is a sound booth in New York’s Grand Central Station that will record information from people’s lives for 40 continuous minutes. Scottish Dance Theatre’s 40 Minutes investigates the information and memories people choose to reveal from years of life experience within this specific time frame.

40 Minutes was a touring dance production for the Scottish Dance Theatre.
