TREMBLE

The Guardian

Inspired by Anna Meredith’s brassy track Nautilus and the desire to create an ambitious work with a large cast, Tremble  was created with 26 dancers from Scottish Ballet. Filmed at FilmCity in Glasgow and made in partnership with Hopscotch Films, it was commissioned as part of Scottish Ballet’s award-winning Digital Season 2019

 

'Tremble' won the 2020 Audience Award at Choreoscope Film Festival and Dance@30FPS USA, and was named winner of Best Short Form at the BBC’s prestigious Celtic Media Festival 2020. It is now available to watch for free on Marquee TV

‘We wanted to find a way to match the endless drive in Anna Meredith’s 

score with bodies on screen to create something large scale and ambitious.

We assigned the camera its own personality, giving it agency to be a player in the action.’

'Comic surrealism and offbeat invention.
Involving frenetically dancing waiters, red jelly and a thrillerish edge, it’s cleverly filmed – the camera is almost a character itself.'

Scottish Ballet dancers on set for Tremb

'The wonderfully surreal Tremble, set in a vast dining room filled with 26 dancers, is propelled by an infectious energy (and jelly)'
