Damien Jalet has been responsible for some of the most revered productions of the last
10 years, including Babel (Laurence Olivier Award 2011) and work with Akram Khan, Sidi
Larbi Cherkaoui and a radical re-staging of Bolero with Marina Abramovic at the Paris
Opera. In a UK first, Jalet collaborates on set design with American Visual Artist Jim
Hodges (Association Internationale des Critiques d’art). Created with the dancers of
Scottish Dance Theatre, Yama explores the mythology associated with mountains to
produce a visceral and compelling work of collective ascension.
