In NEW VOICES comes five world premieres performed by Scottish Ballet and Scottish Dance Theatre. For Scottish Ballet: California's Helen Pickett, a former dancer for William Forsythe and now resident Choreographer at Atlanta Ballet renowned for energetic yet poetic creations; James Cousins, a young choreographer whose contemplative and gripping style won him the inaugural New Adventures Choreographer Award; Martin Lawrance who shares the intense musicality of his mentor Richard Alston and Royal Ballet Soloist Kristen McNally, an exciting, cutting edge choreographer for whom the term ?indie ballet' could have been coined. Henri Oguike, one of the brightest voices of British contemporary dance, takes on a new commission with Scottish Dance Theatre, promising fierce precision in this world premiere.
