Save event

Candoco Dance Company, the world’s leading contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers, has been creating acclaimed and cutting edge work for over 20 years. In this new double bill they are presenting works by two of the most exciting new artistic talents working in the UK today.

Hetain Patel’s Let’s Talk About Dis, is a mischievous 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 has swiftly become known for his strikingly physical and virtuosic choreography. In Beheld, his new commission for Candoco set to music by composer Nils Frahm, seven dancers explore the possibilities and constraints of the space around them, forming and reforming to consider how we look and what we see.
