A LEADING Scottish choreographer is set to return to Shetland in October with his latest dance show.
Jack Webb, who hails from Edinburgh, will showcase The End at Mareel in Lerwick on 8 October.
He is also looking for ten locals aged 16 or over to take part in tutorials before ultimately lining up alongside him at the show.
Webb last visited Shetland in April to add dance to a collaborative project with Unst-based artist Tony Humbleyard.
The End, however, is a show coined solely by the choreographer and it sees three dancers “explore their own sense of mortality, excess, connection, disconnection and endurance” through the notion of “end points”, such as the end of the world and the end of good and bad.
Webb will hold two free evening workshops the week before the performance to teach ten dancers the ropes before they feature in the full show. They should have some experience of dance and physical performance.
Tickets for The End will go on sale via Shetland Box Office from Friday (2 September), with potential dancers able to book the workshops a week later.
