Candoco Performance

Hot Mess and Face In

Fri 28 – Sat 29 Feb 2020
Candoco presents Theo Clinkard's new piece Hot Mess and the wild Face In by choreographer Yasmeen Godder at Laban Theatre, Trinity Laban, London.

From internationally renowned choreographer and designer Theo Clinkard, Hot Mess is an unpredictable and anarchic performance set to a pounding, eclectic score by an award-winning music artist. 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. Danced amidst an unpredictable design, art installation meets dance piece in this explosive new work by the company that continues to expand perceptions of what dance can be.

Yasmeen Godder’s 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.

…raucous, challenging and tender work ★★★★
