Reinventing Scottish Ballet

Ashley Page took over Scottish Ballet a year ago as the company relaunched itself as a modern dance company. In that time, he’s reinvented everything. “Page is reclaiming the past while updating the repertoire with his own works, curator as well as creator. How Scotland reacts to this policy has yet to be determined. The Festival Theatre was by no means full, though Edinburgh audiences are notoriously wary of Glasgow-based culture, and Scottish Ballet has a damaged reputation still to repair.”
