What's on


Maze (film)


Two young people discover each other as they explore a labyrinthine derelict swimming pool. 

A high-energy contemporary dance piece shot in the emptied Govanhill Baths in Glasgow, choreographed by Scottish Ballet’s Sophie Laplane, with music by British-born, Boston-based electro musician John Xela. 

The surprise is Sophie Laplane’s Maze, a piece set in three small acts: a male duet of mirroring, combat and clockwork momentum; a female duet with a birdlike pulse; and a quartet of knotted lifts and partner swaps. In this maze, the relationships change and develop, but there’s also a geometrical feel of patterns, loops and repetitions, carried along at whipcrack pace with invigorating style.’
