Candoco Dance Company | Double Bill

Candoco Dance Company | Double Bill


Candoco created a sensation last year when it became the first contemporary dance company to perform on Strictly Come Dancing. Renowned for creating acclaimed and cutting-edge work, Candoco brings a double bill of dramatic and powerful choreography by Yasmeen Godder and Hetain Patel.

Yasmeen Godder’s _Face In_ is a sensual ode to intimacy and imagination expressed through daring and uninhibited dance. Set to an urban indie score, this visually arresting performance invites audiences to consider contemporary dance in bold new ways.

Hetain Patel presents critically acclaimed work _Let’s Talk About Dis_. A playful and intimate piece, it exposes hidden prejudices and misplaced political correctness with seductive charm.

_Face In _is co-commissioned by Festival Oriente Occidente and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

_Let's Talk About Dis _is funded by Cockayne Foundation - Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation and co-commissioned by Arts Depot.
