TOM 

Country of Origin: UK

Tuesday 9 & Wednesday 10 June / 8pm

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, filmmaker 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, and cutting-edge technologies including animation, projection mapping, sound design and film installation. Innovation meets age-old questions in this affecting journey of self-discovery, which touches on issues of mental health and the perseverance of the human spirit.
