Maze is a stunning short film directed, filmed and edited by Eve McConnachie. The high-energy choreography is by Sophie Laplane who created Maze for the Scottish Ballet’s Autumn Season 2015. The music is by British-born, Boston-based electro musician John Xela and the dancers are Madeline Squire and Javier Andreu from the Scottish Ballet. Laplane will be creating a brand new work for Autumn Season 2016.
Two young people discover each other as they explore a labyrinthine derelict Glaswegian swimming pool.
