About Velvet Petal

Scottish Dance Theatre

Fleur Darkin’s Velvet Petal returns, unveiling a fresh, new version never-before-seen here in Edinburgh.

Tough girls and pretty boys living life in the margins, dreaming about being at the centre. Velvet Petal explores the transformative power of beauty created out of whatever is on the bedroom floor, set to a dance-punk score including music by LCD Soundsystem, Spoek Mathambo and Four Tet.

This fan favourite comes to the Traverse for one night of glorious adolescent abandon.

Venue: T1

Age Recommendation: 12+

Note: Contains brief nudity and adult themes.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Velvet Petal are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
