“You may forget, but let me tell you this: someone in the future will think of us” – Sappho
SAVAGE is an immersive dance theatre performance piece set in the stunning landscape of the Findhorn dunes. We, the audience are guided by young women, the last of their kind, into an elemental world outside of time and place. We pass through mythic spirals and labyrinths and are drawn deeper into the centre of an unfolding mystery. Who are these women? Who are we to them? What is their story? What do they want from us?
Each one of us will journey together yet alone listening to the soundtrack on headphones.
