Our repertoire of duets continues to grow this year as we collaborate with New Art Club's Tom Roden.
Tom Roden draws on his experience across art-form as theatre-maker, comedian, choreographer and dancer in his beautiful new duet for Candoco. This is a piece that promises to make us laugh a lot and maybe even shed a tear too. In his guise as comedian, Tom is particularly keen to play with archetypes - he enjoys usurping people's expectations and encouraging audiences to question the way they perceive the world.
In the studio, Tom is using stand-up comedy to establish the relationship between dancers Annie Edwards and Jemima Hoadley and to create an extensive range of movement material around numerous ideas. It's a fascinating process that is set to become a striking, impassioned and very funny piece of work. We can't wait to share it with audiences this summer.
