Marc Brew: Exalt – Tramway, Glasgow

Choreographer: Marc Brew in collaboration with the company

Direction: Marc Brew

Music: Nils Frahm

Reviewer: Lauren Humphreys

In this world premiere of Exalt, Marc Brew has created an exceptionally emotive, eloquently choreographed, ultimately uplifting piece of work.

Choreographed in collaboration with the dancers of Scottish Ballet and inclusive dance development company Indepen-dance who provide opportunities for people with a diverse range of abilities, this is a joyous celebration of movement: challenging our pre-conceptions about who can be labelled a ‘dancer’ and demonstrating just what those without rigorous formal training can achieve.

To a sonorous score by Nils Frahm, the two companies seamlessly blend tocreatean hypnotic and involving work. The solos, group and whole ensemble sequences demonstrate an inventive and original range of movement, expertly matched to the requirements of each dancer.

I defy anyone who sees this not be entranced. It is a piece that firmly cements Marc Brew’s reputation as one of the world’s finest living choreographers.
