By Fin Walker
Fast-paced and furious, Shadow by Fin Walker is performed with photographic precision that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Interspersed with snapshots of stillness and moments of reflection the end result is exuberant, powerful and totally absorbing.

Fin Walker last worked with Candoco when she choreographed Shadow, as part of our 2002/2003 Triple Bill, which received rave reviews. She is a highly acclaimed choreographer, performer and teacher, who formed her company WalkerDanceParkMusic in 1998 and has collaborated with many of the top names in dance.

She is a recipient of the Jerwood Choreographic Award and is a finalist for a Critics Circle National Dance Award for Best Modern Choreography.

Sad and melancholic, the artists’ faces downcast, Shadow defies its expectations and produces quick-paced, high-energy movement and dance. Expertly choreographed, the performers dart from person to person, always making contact, providing constant support for each other. A mixture of mutual dependency yet fierce independence, Shadow achieves a remarkable effect.
