Artist Focus: Tom Dale Company

26 September, 2015

“lmmerse Yourself in I lnfinite – a fascinating integration of live dance and digital technology from the Tom Dale Company at Dance Base – and the everyday melts away into a bravura haze of cosmic imponderables.” – The Herald (****) Mary Brennan


Tom Dale Company creates collaborative performance work through dance, forming a unique and rich form of expression to reach out and excite new audiences. Testing the boundaries of contemporary dance, with a focus on the synergy between electronic music, digital arts and dance.


Set in a white, digitally animated environment, I Infinite is a mesmerising multi-media dance installation/ performance.

Inspired by the digital world’s quest to re-create life, graphic patterns slice through the space, glowing cubes fracture into a myriad of minuscule squares and pools of light hover in the air like oil on water.

Audiences are free to roam as the spellbinding visual imagery draws them within centimetres of the incredible solo performer whose movement veers between robotic isolation and liquid fluidity.

Locked within a world of finite solutions our dancer embarks on a captivating journey to the infinite.
