Curious, surprising and often funny, Douglas seeks connections and feedback from his surroundings. Douglas shares the spotlight with a number of simple objects in a world of the absorbingly unpredictable and beautifully unspectacular. Douglas is both a reflection on our physical contact with the world and a lo-fi take on choreography that extends beyond the body.

★★★★ Will leave you totally moved and enchanted.” Julia Carruthers, Dubin Dance Festival

Based in the Scottish Highlands, Robbie Synge is an independent choreographer producing work in response to natural and architectural environments and the potential of the human body. His work reflects his rural home environment and his original study, and work in physiology and biological science. Robbie’s work has been presented across the UK and Europe. He was a semi finalist for The Place Prize for Contemporary Dance in 2012.

Douglas was commissioned in 2014 by Yorkshire Dance for the respond_project, a digital adaptation of Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process funded by Arts Council EnglandNESTA and The Arts and Humanities Research Council.
