The Impending Storm (Post-show talk with speech-to-text transcription)

Acclaimed dancer David Toole has collaborated with a team of UK and South African artists, both able-bodied and disabled.
The Impending Storm, created with artist Mark Storor, is personal, particular and political. The dancers of Remix, South Africa's only professional integrated dance company, perform with UK-based David Toole and Lucy Hind.
UK musician Dom Coyote in collaboration with South African singer Sandile Gontsana provides a passionate spoken text and sung score, that effortlessly crosses geographic and cultural continents.
Pushing the boundaries of integrated dance, The Impending Storm is an explosive and emotional look at the stories we tell, and the stories that we are.
'Toole is an extraordinary performer, charismatic and precise.' (The Independent)
'An outstanding cross-cultural collaboration.' (The Times)
The performance will not be captioned. There will be a post-show talk with live speech-to-text transcription in the Purcell Room lasting between 20-30 minutes.
