Could you dance for 12 hours straight – well these dance performers are doing just that.
Manchester-based performance group Quarantine are touring their Wallflower production and will be adding an extra twist for their first Scottish audience at the Universal Hall in Findhorn.
They will be staging the show for 12 consecutive hours, which has never been done before.
Wallflower consists of seven participants who will be trying to remember every dance they have ever performed in their lifetime and will use those memories to tell a different story every night.
It is meant to span a lifetime of music, fashion, politics, friendships, parties, love and loss and is about how dancing can shape lives.

The show takes place on Friday, March 22 from midday until midnight and is being put on in partnership with Findhorn-based group Dance North Scotland.
Karl-Jay Lewin, Creative Director of Dance North, believes the unique event offers audiences something completely different to anything they might have seen.
He said: “The content and premise – dancers remembering every dance they have danced live on stage- makes the show an intimate and imposing one.
“There are real-life experiences which the audience can relate to because everyone has a dance they can remember.
“It’s such a unique concept for everyone involved and people can enter the space whenever they want, as watching a 12-hour show would be pretty hardcore.”
In preparation for the show, Quarantine representatives have already been to Findhorn to ask the public to showcase some of the dances they have remembered from points of their life.
They have now compiled those into an interactive website and may take inspiration from them during the show.
Wallflower director Richard Gregory is looking forward to visiting the north east of Scotland for the first time.
He said: “We’ve previously done a five-hour show and, right from the outset, we realised there is something in this that can help it grow and create a longer version.
“This is an interesting experiment and I am looking forward to coming up. The show will offer a spectrum of most dance genres and interpretations, from professional-style ballet to dancing in a night club.”
The 12-hour marathon will be at Universal Hall in Findhorn from noon until midnight on Friday March 22.
