Within This Dust is a beautiful cinematic dance performance inspired by photographer Richard Drew’s iconic images of a man falling from the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks. By Dundee-based dance company Shaper/Caper, this performance includes three live dance works blended with animation and survivor’s accounts, balancing movement and subtle storytelling to explore themes of loss, survival and humanity.

This critically acclaimed work has toured to Sao Paolo, Berlin and New York City. It had sell-out shows at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and World Trade Centre in New York, and at the Made in Scotland showcase at Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it sold out a 12-night run.
