Wed 20 May - Thu 21 May
Set in a hinterland between the civilised world and the wilderness, TOM tells the story of one man’s journey to rediscover who he really is.
A dance for camera installation, TOM is the latest creation of award-winning choreographer, film- maker and Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate Wilkie Branson. In this soul-searching, poetic film Wilkie explores storytelling using the hip hop language of b-boying, bringing it together with cutting-edge technologies including animation, projection mapping, sound design and film installation.
Innovation meets age old questions in this affecting journey of self-discovery, this dark and affecting narrative touches on issues of mental health and the perseverance of the human spirit.
