Strawboys

Strawboys

Rob Heaslip | 17-21 August | Dancebase – Edinburgh |

In 2021 we created music for Rob Heaslip’s touring production of Strawboys, a vibrant and energetic pop-up performance, blurring the lines between traditional and contemporary dance and music. Featuring luminous straw dancers whirling to Balkan inspired beats, the work is a unique spin on the cultural tradition of Scotland and Ireland’s Strawboys, identified by their ornate straw costumes while out rambling streets, fields, towns and parks, parading their merriment to the joy of onlookers.  

Composers Zoe Katsilerou and Eilon Morris infuse lively Balkan vibes to match the colour popping costumes and woven masks of costume designer Alison Brown.
