As part of the Summer Solstice Wellbeing Day at Crawick Multiverse on Thursday 20th June, visitors will enjoy a Polyhedra Dance performance during the Midday Gathering at the Sun Amphitheatre.

A one hour dance performance developed from the work of dance pioneer Rudolf Laban, the grandfather of contemporary dance, will take place from 1pm – 2pm. The idea of ecstatic architecture links to the same creative principles used by Charles Jencks to produce the different landforms at Crawick Multiverse.

Contributors from 1 – 2pm will include:

Nonsuch History and Dance: Medieval Motions through the Cosmic Realm – come see how each moving planet has its own dance!

Keneish Dance: Balance!* Our cells in our bodies are endlessly regenerating – come see a dance inspired by our own moving spheres!

Playing Around: Brazilian music by composer Villa-Lobos is turned into a mesmerising solo dance with opera singing by Denise Telles Hofstra and supported by Rio Laban.

Dance Together: The performance will end with an opportunity for visitors to join the circle dance of life, or to simply sway from their seat!


Nonsuch History and Dance is a member of the UNESCO International Dance Council and has held summer courses in Sanquhar since 2019, working with local organisations and residents. This year, Nonsuch has invited guest artists who appeared at the UNESCO World Dance Congress in Athens and Rio Laban in Brazil to share in the Summer Solstice at the Crawick Multiverse.

The Nonsuch History and Dance International Summer Course will also include other performances and participatory events:

  • Victorian Day on Friday 21st June at the Tolbooth Museum and a Dance and Garden Party at A’ the Airts
  • The Grand Ball Festival Finale will take place at Sanquhar Town Hall on Sunday 23rd June. All welcome.
  • Nonsuch History and Dance Midsummer dance drama display in the Sun Amphitheatre at Crawick Multiverse on Sunday 23rd June

*Balance Tour – supported by Arts Council of England and funded by Laban Guild International
