Salamanda Tandem exist to develop cutting edge contemporary sound / movement and sensory performance; in order to inspire and enable people, including disabled people, carers and people struggling with isolation or exclusion from all areas of society, to harness creativity in order to improve wellbeing, quality of life and that of people around us.
Salamanda Tandem are:
• Thought leaders in creativity, and the engineers of wellbeing and participation.
• Developers of socially engaged performance at the cutting edge
• An ethical company
Salamanda Tandem’s original music has been a major part of the company’s artistic output for 30 years, and goes hand in hand with all our choreographic, visual performance, films, exhibitions and installations. Sound Artists, movement and visual artists, technical enablers, and creators of site specific performance, come together to create Sensory & Socially Engaged interventions.
Music has been produced, composed and performed by a number of wonderful musicians / singers / composers over the years, who have worked closely in collaboration with composer / singer / director / yogi / audio describer Isabel Jones for each project to produce a tailored and unique work.
The variety and beauty of the music created is a testament to a deep understanding and synergy between Isabel and her collaborators - this site is an opportunity to listen to some of these works.
