Performances at Edinburgh Fringe British Council Showcase

Following a Spring tour, Tom Dale Company is delighted to present Refugees of the Septic Heart as part of the prestigious British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2013.

Explosive physicality, urban soundscapes and graphic visuals ignite in a mischievous exploration of life perched on the brink of change. Described by as a “choreographic concept album”, Refugees of the Septic Heart is a thought provoking and philosophical new work reflecting the heart beat of a nation; an animalistic tribe of 6 dancers embark on an evolutionary journey spanning a distant past to a high-finance future before exploding into a new dimension.

Inspired by a pulsating cinematic score by Shackleton and spoken work artist, Vengeance Tenfold, Tom Dale’s choreography shifts between fast paced fluidity, explosive athleticism and utter stillness. A unique gracefulness dissolves into chaotic hurtling action, thoughtful duets and spirited solos.

Digital projects by Barrett Hodgson create a mesmerising elemental and abstract environment skilfully transforming the set into an evolving landscape. It is an audio visual world of digital animation, music and movement.
