Motion text

That this House celebrates the creativity of Scottish Ballet who embraced the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic and delivered a truly successful digital Christmas Season over the 2020 festive period; acknowledges the innovation of filmmakers Jessica Wright and Morgann Runacre-Temple in developing the Secret Theatre Christmas Special that brought the magic of the theatre into people’s homes and thanks all of the performers, technicians and organisers for bringing the piece to life; appreciates Scottish Ballet’s involvement in YouTube’s 12 Days of Culture programme that offered free online access to their works over Christmas; recognises their commitment to addressing and removing racist stereotypes from ballet, in particular for the work they have done to improve representation of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller culture within their production of the Snow Queen; and finally thanks Scottish Ballet for continuing to nurture and promote young talent and for ensuring that Glasgow continues to be a centre for excellence in the arts.
