40 Minutes is a collaboration with Janet Smith, choreographer and Artistic Director at the Scottish Dance Theatre, 1997-201.
The work was inspired by the New York Grand Central Station’s oral history project where a sound booth was placed in the station to record information from people’s lives for 40 continuous minutes. Scottish Dance Theatre’s 40 Minutes investigates the information and memories people choose to reveal from years of life experience within this specific time frame.
40 Minutes was a touring dance production for the Scottish Dance Theatre.
