Co-commissioned by Dance Umbrella and the Gate Theatre in conjunction with the RPS Drummond Fund, Metis Arts, Lost Dog, Dario Palermo and Will Duke, with support from the Junction.
 
Join us for the world premiere production of THE DIFFERENCE ENGINE – a vital and captivating interplay between dance, live and electronic music, video and theatre. Loosely inspired by Chris Marker’s 1962 short film La Jetée, this new work manipulates time and memory by exploring the world’s primordial past, its physical present, and its technological future.
 
This is the second collaborative project from Zoë Svendsen, Ben Duke, Will Duke and Dario Palermo. Their debut work Discombobulator premiered to considerable acclaim at the 2009 Venice Biennale.
 
Following the success of I Am Falling and Press at the Gate, we continue our exploration of contemporary dance by opening our doors to Dance Umbrella – London’s international festival of new dance.
