A new, live form of dance music

Part 1: Step Sonic
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, the 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.

Focused on the body and movement Step Sonic is a visceral, explosive and captivating performance.

Age Recommendation: 12+

Please Note: This performance contains moving lights and haze.
