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.

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

Alexander Whitley has swiftly become known for his strikingly physical and virtuosic choreography. ‘Beheld’, his commission for Candoco features powerful duets and breath-taking ensemble dancing with huge swathes of fabric and is set to a mesmerising score by German composer Nils Frahm, reworked by Rutger Zuydervelt.  In this piece, Candoco’s seven dancers explore the possibilities and constraints of the space around them, forming and reforming to consider how we look and what we see.

Yasmeen Godder's new work for Candoco, ‘Face In’, is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through images interwoven with daring and 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: dancing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous.
