About CUT

An immersive, reimagining of the story of Bizet’s opera, Carmen.

CUT is a night out like no other! Inspired by Bizet’s stunning opera Carmen, CUT is a high octane and immersive dance theatre experience that explores the genre of horror by taking audiences on a twisted and terrifying journey to explore human nature, secrets and darkest fears. This show is not for the faint of heart, and will take audiences on a murder mystery like no other.

CUT is a promenade performance touring the inner workings of the D.J. & Son Abattoir, a slaughterhouse based in Dundee. Following a drinks reception featuring live music, audiences are plunged into darkness where they have to fend for themselves whilst hoping to stay one step ahead of a murderous hunter. CUT features interactive elements that gets the whole audience dancing and includes a section where the audience hide in darkened rooms to try to escape the hatchet carrying hunter.

CUT features dance, theatre, music, and design to create a chillingly immersive world that is charged with a relentlessly claustrophobic terror. CUT premiered to SOLD OUT audiences in the decadent surroundings of Camperdown House in Dundee in November 2013 and returns to Dundee for 2017 in a brand new location at D.J. & Son Abattoir at West Ward Works (the former DC Thomson printing press factory) - visit the abattoir's website for more info.

CUT features new music by renowned Scottish composer, Quee MacArthur that is skillfully woven with the original Bizet score, dramaturgy by award-winning author Catriona Lexy Campbell.

For this performance of CUT, we are collaborating with Scottish School of Contemporary Dance at Dundee & Angus College 

CUT is infectiously barbaric!
