Candoco Dance Company presents two US premieres in this dramatic and powerful double bill. Yasmeen Godder’s Face In is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, where images are interwoven with daring and uninhibited dance, whilst Beheld presents powerful duets and breath-taking ensemble dancing set to a mesmerising score by German composer Nils Frahm.
Yasmeen Godder’s new work for Candoco, Face In, is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through striking images and daring 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: performing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous.
Sadler’s Wells New Wave Artist, Alexander Whitley creates visually striking dance pieces, which incorporate sinuous and expressive movement articulations. Performed by Candoco’s company dancers for the first time in October 2015, Beheld is a resonant and emotive piece that should not be missed.
In addition to our live programme, we will be presenting our new film Unspoken Spoken by Fin Walker.
