The Impending Storm

Acclaimed dancer David Toole has collaborated with a team of UK and South African artists, both non-disabled and disabled.

The Impending Storm created with artist Mark Storor is personal, particular and political. The dancers of Remix, South Africa’s only professional integrated dance company, perform with UK-based David Toole and Lucy Hind. UK musician Dom Coyote, in collaboration with South African singer Sandile Gontsana, provides a passionate spoken text and sung score, that effortlessly crosses geographic and cultural continents.

Pushing the boundaries of integrated dance, The Impending Storm is an explosive and emotional look at the stories we tell and the stories that we are.

Recommended for ages 12+

Produced with the support of DanceXchange, The Impending Storm was workshopped in Cape Town in 2011. Remix is supported by Youngblood Arts Development, and the project has received support from the Joyce Carr Doughty Charitable Trust.

Post-show talk: Friday 7 September. All post-show talks are BSL interpreted and speech to text transcribed.
Audio Description and Touch Tour are only available for the Saturday 8 September performance.
