British contempory dance roams into town
Update: Jun 08, 2010
Audiences in Hanoi and Hue will have a chance to enjoy the spectacular contemporary dance Roam staged by British dancers.

Roam, a captivating journey performed by five stunning dancers plunges the audience into a world of swinging sub-bass and complex percussion, with especially commissioned tracks from producer/composer Shackleton and drum&bass Sion.

Roam takes as its starting point the human requirement to explore and experience, and incorporates the work of poet Rick Holland.

The piece explores the concept of roaming through life, according to founder and choreographer Tom Dale.

Tom Dale creates collaborative performance work through dance with the aim of creating a unique and rich form of expression that reaches out and excites new audiences.

Award winning dancer/choreographer Tom Dale founded the Tom Dale Company in 2001. An involvement in electronic music encouraged Tom to seek out a career in dance.

In 2006 he was a semi-finalist for the prestigious Place Prize with Whose Futures in London and his company's most recent work Rise was featured as part of Spring Loaded 2008 following a UK tour and successful run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He was part of Europe in Motion, Spring Dance Festival 2009.

The piece was created with support from the Laban Theatre, DanceXchange, Dance Digital, the Garrick Charitable Trust and Arts Council England.

The Hanoi performance of Roam took place at 8pm on June 6 at the Youth Theatre, 11 Ngo Thi Nham Street.

As the British Council's contribution to the Hue Festival this year, the performance will take place at 7.30pm on June 9 and at 8.30pm on June 10 at Thai Hoa Eastern Stage, Royal Citadel.

Tickets can be purchased at every Festival box-office in Hue City.
