Tom Dale Company – Roam

Portfolio / July 12, 2010



“The effect is electric” Edinburgh Guide

Tom Dale’sRoam is a captivating journey of 5 dancers into a world of swinging sub bass and complex percussion, with commissioned music from maverick producer Shackleton and live drum & bass from Sion.

Life’s roaming pulse is the unstoppable condition in which life finds itself, relentlessly taking us into the unknown, connecting moment to moment, for survival, inspiration, meaning, distraction… conscious or unconscious.  ROAM takes as its starting point the human requirement to explore and experience.

“Both the movements themselves and the small dramas they suggest are engrossing and pleasurable to watch”
