Dotty’s friend Hex is a simple two-dimensional line. He can make angles and the most he can make is six. His favourite shape is a hexagon. He’s happy with this, but one day he really wants to make a curve. With a lot of effort he learns to bend, then multiply, and suddenly he can create all kinds of shapes, eventually popping into three dimensions, discovering he can turn into anything he wants to. Join Dotty and Hex in this fantastical wonderland for a rollercoaster ride of digital surprises
Tom Dale Company creates extraordinary performances that bring together urban contemporary dance, electronic music and digital art.
