Alex McCabe

  • Alex McCabe c. The Camera Quines

As a musician converted to a second career in dance and choreography, the bulk of my creation combines both forms to create innovative and interactive audience experiences.

Alex is a Glasgow-based performer, performance maker and facilitator in dance and music. With this dual specialisation he works extensively and internationally in choreography for opera (Wexford Festival Opera; Teatro Reggio; Scottish Opera) and experimental interdisciplinary projects (Marc Brew; Fattoria Vittadini). Alex works with various organisations in Scotland towards broadening access to experiences and careers in dance and music. Trained through Dance Base Edinburgh’s DEBS, Alex also holds an MA, PhD and Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Glasgow. Thanks to an international education, Alex is a fluent speaker of five languages and also collaborates as an interpreter and multi-lingual organiser with performing arts festivals (Festival Mirabilia, Edinburgh International Festival).
