ARTISTIC POLICY
Tom Dale Company creates collaborative performance work through dance with the aim of creating a unique and rich form of expression to reach out and excite new audiences. Tom Dale’s style, fuelled by his background in electronic music and investigations into uses of gravity, fragmentation, and sequencing patterns, makes complex use of explosive yet relaxed movement forms, making it highly challenging and a thrill to both watch and perform.

REVIEW EXTRACTS
‘Sucks the breath right out of you… continuously inventive choreography. Three Weeks (Rise)

‘Exhilaratingly beautiful and simmering with danger.’ British Theatre Guide (Rise)

‘Dale's edgy new work takes the temperature of Britain.’ The Guardian (Rise)

CURRENT PRODUCTIONS
Roam A captivating journey into a world of dynamic, unpredictable dance with sub-bass music by Shackleton and SION. Roam takes as its starting point the human requirement to explore and experience. (50 mins, no interval. 5 performers, 6 on the road.)

Rise Five hooded figures cut across society to challenge the twitching landscape that sustains and detains them. An assault on complacency, Rise is exhilarating, edgy and beautiful, taking the audience into the heart of our claustrophobic communities. (45 mins, no interval. 5 performers, 6 on the road.)

Cabin Fever Lost in their own world, a character's cabin fever and mental loops produce an exhilarating, hypnotic performance. This startlingly expressive work becomes a metaphor for a contemporary state of mind. (15 mins, 1 performer.)

WRAP-AROUND
Tom Dale Company can provide a range of practical dance workshops exploring the company’s style and its music led approach to this production.
