In this work EDIFICE Dance Theatre draws on the notion of ‘seeing’ through touch, flesh contact and intuition.Combining the flow of Contact Improvisation and the rhythms and dynamics of Ballroom, ‘Tenome’ invites you on a journey of discovery into the unknown.

"Edifice is a new force to be reckoned with...keep your eyes peeled for their next tour dates."
“EDIFICE Dance Theatre's accomplished choreographers Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn take us into a mythical smoky underworld of blind creatures, that skilfully uses light to explore each others' insect, skeletal-like bodies of thrust rib cages and sharp arms, thinly covered in nude cloth and eye-covered head pieces. An absorbing array of scenes with every moment wonderfully filled with intricate pas de deux and quartets to heart beating loud base that kicks off with ear splitting static. The four highly trained dancers further elevated the piece, beautifully melding the anonymous anatomical features with ballroom sequences infused with seamless contact that creates a continuous dialogue between their bodies.”
TENOME (Eyes on Hand) is supported by the Arts Council England and is a co-production with EDIFICE Dance Theatre, The Cockpit and St Mary in the Castle.
