2Faced Dance returns with a triple bill of darkly explosive new break-infused contemporary dance works from critically acclaimed choreographers Tom Dale.

'Dale’s edgy work takes the temperature of Britain' Guardian, Place Prize finalist Freddie Opoku-Addaie and 2Faced Artistic Director Tamsin Fitzgerald, exploring themes of decay and destruction.

‘In the Dust’ features Dale's new piece Subterrania, is inspired by the evocative music of Shackleton. His oozing bass lines and snaking percussion, combine with Dale's iconic movement to evoke a picture of a world facing imminent doom, juxtaposing a chaotic urgency with a rich warmth. 

In contrast, Politicking Oath by Opoku-Addaie's takes as its starting point the spirit and emotion expressed by the Olympic oath, Olympic anthem and national anthems. With an original score by Alberto Bernal, it explores the ecstasy and adversity of representing a national psyche in competition in the stadium of dreams.  

The final piece entitled 7.0 is inspired by Fitzgerald’s visit to Haiti a year after the devastating earthquake. It questions how we react when everything we take for granted - our homes, communities and social structures - are ripped from us, and has been created in collaboration with composer Alex Baranowski, renowned for his dramatic and filmic scores, most recently Frankenstein at the National Theatre and RSC.

Just back from the Edinburgh Festival, In the Dust has been critically well received with several Four Star Reviews

The Skinny

'Fitzgerald has forged her own distinctive language’ Guardian.

'Marvelous choreography, fierce, bitter and brutal, that takes the potential for total theatre seriously. Plenty of companies claim to experiment. Plenty of companies make high claims for their work. 2Faced deliver.' ***** Skinny
