Tom Dale Company presents
Step Sonic: Part 1 & 2
A tribute to electronic music
Part 1, Step Sonic
A new, live form of dance music
Breath, voice, the noise of bodies impacting and the sound of feet & limbs on the floor create the score of this new dance work.
Three dancers unite in an amplified environment. Shotgun microphones, custom made instruments, plate reverbs and amplified boxes capture the rhythms and sounds. Sampled live by composer Jo Wills, our dancers become The Band creating a new type of dance music/music dance.
3 Solos by 3 Choreographers
A celebration of the instrumental impact music has had on contemporary dance, featuring
SURGE by Tom Dale :
Adrenaline charged, awe-inspiring, furious urban contemporary dance performed by one of the UK’s rising stars
Resonance of Air by Eleesha Drennan:
Surprising rhythms of bat echolocation set the score for a virtuosic display of visible echoes.
Escape by Jamaal Burkmar:
Soul, rhythm and blues, funk, pop and a classical music infusion inspired by Janelle Monae.
Focused on the body and movement Step Sonic part 1 & 2 is a visceral, explosive and captivating performance.
