Candoco Dance Company, the contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers, has been creating acclaimed and cutting edge work for 25 years. In this bold double bill, Candoco presents commissions from two of the most exciting artistic talents working in the UK today.

Following a lauded UK tour in autumn 2014, Hetain Patel’s Let’s Talk About Dis returns to the stage to captivate audiences once more. 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.

Alexander Whitley creates visually striking dance pieces, which incorporate sinuous and expressive movement articulations. Set to a mesmerising score by composer Nils Frahm, this is a resonant and emotive piece performed with reckless flair.

CounterActs blends playful choreography with thought-provoking ideas. A stirring programme that shows contemporary dance in a new light, affirming Candoco’s position as the company that is pushing boundaries and challenging notions of dance. 

Please note this show has a 20 minute interval.
