Adrenaline-charged, furious, urban contemporary dance.
As digital innovation accelerates humans share the planet with the new life force of technology. The gap between life and Artificial Intelligence is shrinking. Pulsating bass lines charge the air. A solo dancer enters, her movement a mixture of nature’s fluid forms and the angular automation of the technological world. She falls, twists, slides and is still. Her potency fills the space. Torn between two opposing worlds, she wrestles to find her place in humanity.
SURGE builds on choreographer Tom Dale’s ongoing fascination with the organic world’s relationship to the digital world. A world where the distinction between the artificial and the real is uncertain.
