Refugees of the Septic Heart reflects the heartbeat of a nation as it perches on the brink of change. At times philosophical and provocative, six dancers search for a society freed of greed, manipulation and control. Gritty physicality and decaying urban sounds evolve into an optimistic undercurrent of mischievous, spirited and irrepressible movement. Inspired by music producer Shackleton’s undulating rhythms, snaking percussions and hypnotic melodies, Tom Dale Company unites Barret Hodgson’s digital animation, spoken word by Vengeance Tenfold and Dale’s inventive choreography in a feast of visuals, movement and music.
Refugees of the Septic Heart continues the collaboration between the creative duo (Dale & Hodgson) behind the internationally acclaimed I Infinite.
Features music from Shackleton’s forthcoming concept album of the same name.
Commissioned by DanceXchange and supported by Curve, Leicester, Lakeside Arts Centre, Deda, Laban Theatre and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Tom Dale Company is resident company at Dance4. Produced by Claire Summerfield.
