Cold Rolling was initially choreographed by Tanja as part of the Adain Avion project in 2012. Featuring dancers from Ballet Cymru and the Ebbw Vale Male Choir, Cold Rolling was an exploration of the steelmaking process, performed in the General Office of the Ebbw Vale Steelworks.

Later that year, TaikaBox adapted it for stage and it toured as part of a double bill with Tir - Ballet Cymru's popular collaboration with Cerys Matthews.
