Saying goodbye to Laura Patay and Nico Vendange
Six years ago, Laura Patay joined Candoco Dance Company. Three years later, partner Nico Vendange joined too. Now, the duo are heading onto new adventures and saying their goodbyes to Candoco Dance Company. In this journal, they share their best moments with the company and what they've learnt.
I am interested in our personal level of engagement, not only in dance but towards all things in life, I see the understanding and knowledge of how our body works in relation to the world as being very individual, but mostly important and as essential for our own learning, participation and commitment towards everything around us.
My creative work in contemporary and inclusive dance follows a persistent idea – there is a power to acting in any living body and my body is the place where I want to stay…in action.
In touring with Candoco I have become fascinated by how the experience of the performer and audience can be that of shared witnessing and visibility.
