About

Candoco Dance Company: Face In / Let's Talk About Dis 

Candoco Dance Company, the company of disabled and non-disabled dancers, creates excellent and profound experiences for audiences and participants that excite, challenge and broaden perceptions of art and ability.

With over 25 years experience of creating acclaimed and cutting edge work, Candoco presents a brand new double bill of dramatic and powerful choreography. 

Yasmeen Godder's new work for Candoco, Face In, is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through striking images and daring uninhibited dance. Set to an urban indie score, Candoco invites you to bask in this wild fictional world that feels uncomfortably familiar yet strangely distorted. A world that Candoco's dancers inhabit with ease: performing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous.

Visual artist Hetain Patel's Let’s Talk About Dis is a playful and intimate piece that builds on an exploration of the dancers’ personalities and bodies, interrogating questions of what identity is and how it is formed. With seductive charm, Hetain challenges audiences to think beyond surface appearances, exposing hidden prejudices and absurd political correctness.
