SCOTTISH Dance Theatre has taken over Tramway with four daring works.

During nearly two weeks of cutting-edge dance, the company will perform pieces by two international choreographers and two regular favourites.

On Friday and Saturday nights, dancers will perform SisGo, inviting the audience to get up close and personal with some of Europe's finest dancers.

The company's artistic director Fleur Darkin said: "I'm delighted Scottish Dance Theatre has brought four pieces from its current repertoire to Tramway.

"The company flexes its muscle as a powerhouse producer with shows across a range of scales and aimed at wildly different audiences."

After wowing audiences at the 2013 Edinburgh Inter-national Festival, SisGo brings together a range of talent.

Multi-award winning lighting technician Lucy Carter's designs make sure every audience member is bathed in light.

Hayley Scanlan, who was Scottish Fashion Awards Young Designer of the Year 2012, has designed the costumes.

And a score representing Berlin/Detroit is crafted by Glyn Perrin, featuring music by Four Tet and Moritz Von Oswald.

There are 12 dancers in Scottish Dance Theatre and, for SisGo, they are joined by around 20 to 25 community dancers.

Dancer and rehearsal director Matthew Robinson said: "It is a pleasure for us to be sharing the breadth of our work at Tramway over this two-week residency, the culmination of which is SisGo.

"The work allows exciting proximity between the performers and audience and is a riot of vibrant light, heavy bass and powerful choreography.

"Come and literally share the stage with us."

This week the company danced Kingdom, by Spanish choreographer, Jorge Crecis.

The cast of 10 dancers begins with 80 bamboo sticks and 120 ropes and turn the materials into a shelter.

French/Belgian choreo-grapher Damien Jalet, a Laurence Olivier Award winner, created Yama, after a visit to Japan's tsunami-hit region, which is also performed this week, while children's piece Innocence was performed at the weekend.
