A new, live form of dance music from acclaimed contemporary dance ensemble, the Tom Dale Company. Focusing on the body and movement, Sonic Step is a visceral, explosive and captivating performance.

Step Sonic: part 1
Raw physicality, breath, voice, the noise of bodies impacting and the sound of feet and limbs on the floor.

Three dancers unite in an amplified environment. Shotgun microphones, custom made instruments, plate reverbs and amplified boxes capture the rhythms and sounds. Sampled and processed live by composer Jo Wills, our dancers become The Band creating a new type of dance music/music dance.

Part 2: Three Solos by Three 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.

...and, a new work by Jamaal Burkmar
Soul, rhythm and blues, funk, pop and a classical music infusion inspired by Janelle Monae.
