Post-Show conversation with artists after Friday 8pm show
Set in a hinterland between the civilised world and the wild, Tom explores the story of one man’s journey to rediscover who he really is. This remarkable and poignant film installation fuses b-boy choreography by award-winning film maker Wilkie Branson with digital animation to create a cinematic world where it’s entirely possible to feel lonely in the midst of a crowd. With projection mapping across a uniquely layered design by Nottingham-based artist Barret Hodgson, Tom is like nothing else you’ve seen before.
I have personally never seen a film created with such a crossover from real life to animation and it is stunning… a wonderfully original experience.”
