Dance Away: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Elisabeth Schilling & Louise Ahl...

Elisabeth Schilling & Louise Ahl

The latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast has interviews with choreographers and theatre makers, Elisabeth Schilling and Louise Ahl, about their respective new shows Hear Eyes Move: Dances with Ligeti and Skunk without k is Sun.

First of all Elisabeth talks about why she chose to celebrate the music of György Ligeti in Hear Eyes Move, what she sees as his legacy, performing the show across Europe, theatrical inspirations, why returning to perform in Scotland is so important, and more.

Then Louise explains Skunk without k is Sun - a new experimental solo opera work which will be performed as part of the Take Me Somewhere Festival 2023. She also talks about how she came to opera, wanting to make it more accessible (and subvert people's ideas about it), the technical and physical demands of the piece, and how previous work will feed into this new performance.
