‘Vital, fluent dance that admits no boundaries.’
Tanz Magazine, Berlin [on John Scott]

Cloud Study is part dance, part theatre, part athletics.

Two compelling dancers: Mufutau Yusuf, an Irish man born in Nigeria and Salma Ataya, a Palestinian Dabka dancer, attempt to run 1,000 kilometres in circles and lines through the performance space, chasing dreams, memories and home. Music by Ryan Vail. 

John Scott returns to Galway with his new wild, beautiful and explosive running dance.
