Precious Metal is a powerful and playful new work featuring an international team of technically brilliant and culturally diverse dancers and artists. Precious Metal combines passion, virtuosity and humour in an exciting progression of Scott's award-winning work with migrants and torture survivors. Precious Metal explores themes of identity, migration and belonging, past and present. The dancers speak different languages and have different cultures although they all now identify as Irish. The original sound composition, by Irish composer Tom Lane, is sampled from metallic sources, including cymbals, dulcimer strings and bells, reminiscent of Javanese gamelan.
