“It’s rare in dance to feel totally intrigued by what might happen next” – Sarah Crompton, The Guardian

by Marcos Morau

A haunting waltz plays in the distance. From the ashes a tangle of shining creatures emerge to inhabit a new world. In the chaos and turbulence their only hope is to remain united.

If you enjoyed the electrifying choreographic world of Tundra in 2017, this is another chance to experience work by trailblazing Spanish choreographer Marcos Morau.

Say Something
by Sarah Golding & Yukiko Masui (SAY)

Say Something explores what it means to ‘represent’, and the ever-growing expectation to have a voice. Working with beatboxers MC Zani and Dean Yhnell, this new work is a relentlessly physical, visual and sonic feast.

SAY have a passion for music that makes them want to move. Say Something will make the whole room want to get up and groove.

Join NDCWales for a powerful evening of dance.

★★★★ “Mesmerising” – The Guardian

SURGE gives life to a future human on the bridge between the digital and organic worlds. A character pushed to their limits to ‘feel’ – to ‘sense’ – to ‘exist’. An immersive, audio visual, genre-breaking performance, touring exclusive new music from British music producer ITAL TEK.

Performed alongside TDC’s new group piece SUB:VERSION – an elegant selection of ten dance sketches that weave a hypnotic journey through an array of electronic music sub-genres using WEN’s album EPHEM:ERA.
