WE APPRECIATE YOU!!!! xx
Thank you to those that contributed to the production of OSCiLLATE in the summer of 2018. We had an amazing run of 16 shows in the UK at iconic venues such as: Sadler's Wells- The Lilian Baylis Theatre, Latitude Music Festival, London Cabaret Club- London Tap Dance Intensive, DanceBase as part of Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Have you seen our 2019/20 tour schedule? its pretty amazing... https://www.oldkentroadtap.com/tour-dates-2019-20
We were awarded Arts Council England funding to enhance the shows production with a commission by DanceEast to put OSCiLLATE into re-creation as we further expanded our tour for 2019/20. However we are still looking for financial support as we prepare with your help to share OSCiLLATE with more individuals and their communities.
This new groundbreaking show choreographed by Avalon Rathgeb and Dre Torres is heavily influenced by original electronic dance music and its coordination between light and sound. OSCiLLATE reveals an eclectic group of individuals who display a range of human interaction and relationships through movement and sound. The concept of the show unveils the struggle between communication and how it can be misunderstood by each other and by those watching. Expansion into group pieces will articulate the transitions between lack of communication, confusion, and misunderstanding, and move us towards proficiency within compassion and equality.
We aim to manifest these ideas and discoveries of our own personal experiences of the world in a way that all audiences can relate. This journey of a show will make you think about the way people choose to see and accept relationships. It’s important for us to identify outcomes that are not only beautiful, but truthful through realisation and consciousness.
The show should be aimed at all ages, genders, religions, ethnic backgrounds and cultures. OSCiLLATE aims to cultivate an educational experience through dance and music while showing the form of tap dance at its prime in direct correlation with electronic music composed specifically for this show.
Through direct and indirect communication all types of relationships go through similar experiences and can come out on a more positive note in the end. Through rhythmic expression, tap dance and movement we would like to show you our journey and discoveries.
Old Kent Road need your help... We are raising money to support the company on their upcoming tour of China and various theatres in the UK. We are clearly not great at asking for so money so we included our bloopers video so you can have a laugh too. Enjoy.
