Acclaimed dancer David Toole collaborated with a team of UK and South African artists, both non-disabled and disabled, on The Impending Storm, which premiered at IDFB 2012 in May. Watch the video below to see some of the highlights of an unforgettable show:
Created with artist Mark Storor, The Impending Storm is personal, particular and political. Pushing the boundaries of integrated dance, the work is an explosive and emotional look at the stories we tell, and the stories that we are.
The dancers of Remix, South Africa’s only professional integrated dance company, perform with UK-based David Toole and Lucy Hind, to a soundtrack performed live by UK musician Dom Coyote, in collaboration with South African singer Sandile Gontsana, which provides a passionate spoken text and sung score that effortlessly crosses geographic and cultural continents.
