Hot Mess by Theo Clinkard

From internationally renowned choreographer and designer Theo Clinkard, Hot Mess is an unpredictable and anarchic performance set to a pounding, eclectic score by award-winning music artist, Joe Newman.

Led by Theo’s exploration of ‘consciously unknowing’ as a vital creative source, Candoco’s phenomenal dancers fearlessly embrace spontaneity and uncertainty as they navigate an environment that is constantly in flux.

Art installation meets dance piece in this explosive new work by the company that continues to expand perceptions of what dance can be.

This piece is supported by The Leche Trust and PRS Foundation (for original music) and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance

Face In by Yasmeen Godder

Face In is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through striking images interwoven with daring and 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: dancing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous.

Yasmeen Godder is an Israeli choreographer who makes work that is seductive, disturbing, potent and personal. Her work has been presented at venues and festivals worldwide, including Lincoln Center Festival, Tokyo International Festival, Sydney Opera House and Montpelier Dance Festival.

This piece is co-commissioned by Festival Oriente Occidente and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
