celebration of life and death".

Micaela Greganti's Japanese Lights is her fourth choreographic work. Set to
music by Yuzo Toyama, (Japanese Rhapsody for Orchestra and excerpts from
Yugen) and performed by nine dancers, Micaela describes Japanese Lights as
"brief musical images full of mystery and emotion, capturing the rhythms and
evocative sounds of the music in movement and light". Micaela's previous
works include Three for Four, First Movement and the collaborative piece
Mosaic.

Scottish Ballet's Choreologist Jane Jewell - who's Aspire was a runner-up in
the first-ever Peter Darrell Choreographic Award - will create a new piece

"a slice of contemporary life". This piece will be performed by twelve
dancers to live accompaniment by Greg Lawson (Scottish Chamber Orchestra) to
J.S. Bach's Paritas for Violin Solo.

Ex-Dance School of Scotland student Lorna Scott, will premiere her fifth
choreographic work In the Beginning... Devised for three dancers and set to
Karl Jenkins' Songs of Sanctuary and Imagined Oceans, In the Beginning... is

the departure from Eden". Lorna's previous works include Tam o' Shanter,
Carnival of the Animals, Elements and the collaborative work, Mosaic.
