Tom Dale Company combines dance, electronic music and digital media to create category-defying performances which reach into popular culture. The company’s latest double bill is back on tour in autumn 2023 and spring 2024 after critically acclaimed performances earlier this year.
Opening the evening, SURGE is an immersive, audio-visual, genre-breaking performance for stellar soloist Jemima Brown, twice nominated in National Dance Awards. Brown not only dances but sings live, her voice pouring over a dark electronic score from British music producer ITAL TEK. Android-like in white costume and close-cropped hair, there is an unearthly quality to her presence within Barret Hodgson’s dazzling projections.
More grounded and earthy in comparison, SUB:VERSION is a deceptively simple, yet meticulously choreographed selection of ten dance sketches for four dancers, oozing effervescent physicality and musicality. Laced with elements of hip-hop, popping and house dance, this is urban yet sophisticated choreography with a distinctive style.
