The Difference Engine

An entrancing fusion of dance, live music, real-time electronics, interactive video and animation. Loosely inspired by Chris Marker’s 1962 time-travel film La Jetee, this new dance work manipulates time and memory by exploring the world’s primordial past, it’s physical present, and it’s technological future.

This is the second collaborative project from theatre-makers Zoe Svensden, Ben Duke, Will Duke and Dario Palermo.
