Presence

3 sisters who resign to the fact that they are ghosts (having no idea how it happened) and try to settle into their new surroundings and afterlife. This is a beautiful, mesmerizing and energetic dance piece which shows the strong relationship between the 3 sisters.

Vito Dance Theatre collaborated with Liam Marshall to create a powerful and eye catching film of the ghostly figures to go hand in hand with the live performance. As well as Keith Beattie composing a piece of music especially for this piece.

WHAT DID PEOPLE THINK?

‘It’s mesmerising to watch them dance.  The thoughtful choreography of Presence builds up into something beautiful and dramatic. They are a great example of what imagination and lots of hard work can create.  They have set the bar high for themselves.’ (Suzanne Bunniss, Fire.Cloud)

‘Excellant.’ (Amanda-Louise Clark, Central Ballet of Scotland)

‘Very evocative and told a story…Loved the mixture of technique and madness…Loved it…It was great…Your piece was awesome.’  (Audience feedback, Go Dance 10, Theatre Royal Glasgow)
