Search Engine

National Tour in May


Shimmering light and captivating movement fill the universe of Search Engine. Within this luminous, metallic world, three choreographers explore and define their experiences of what it means to seek out and to search within our technologically driven society.

This brand new show is a different kind of dance experience, where the audience is absorbed by fragmented light displays and close enough to the stage to feel the incredible energy of the five performers. These three short works by Lauren Langlois, Rose Philpott and Tupua Tigafua are guaranteed to intrigue, delight and surprise you.

“These dancers are something else. All five of them are electrifying to watch” Gin Mabey, Theatreview

“Footnote have an exceptional company this year.” Holly Shanahan, Theatreview
