Dance meets Dubstep as Tom Dale Company take to the Déda Stage

On Saturday 23 March at 8pm, Tom Dale Company presents Refugees of the Septic Heart, a multimedia performance featuring exhilarating contemporary dance with cutting edge dubstep and techno music.

The multi-disciplinary urban performance features six exceptional dancers, new and previously unheard music by prodigious dubstep producer Shackleton and collaborator Vengeance Tenfold, and animation and projection by digital artist Barret Hodgson.

Refugees of the Septic Heart is an absorbing work of gritty physicality exploring ideas around societal change, notions of power, market values, the individual and the rise of technology within our daily worlds. At times philosophical and provocative the dancers search for a society free of greed, manipulation and control.

Tom Dale Company is based in Nottingham and currently resident at Dance4. Tom has previously worked with Déda gifted and talented Youth Performance Company Bounceback to create a full length adaptation of The Rite of Spring accompanied by Sinfonia Viva’s sixty five piece orchestra. An excerpt of the full length work was performed at the U.Dance East Midlands youth dance platform and secured the winning trophy for the company.

Tom Dale Company perform Refugees of the Septic Heart at Déda on Saturday 23 March at 8pm. Tickets are £10 (£8 concession) and are available from the Box Office on 01332 370911 or online at
