Candoco Dance Company presents a dramatic and powerful new double bill. Visual artist Hetain Patel’s Let’s Talk About Dis returns to challenge notions of identity and appearances, while Yasmeen Godder’s Face In is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, where images are interwoven with daring and uninhibited dance.

The company of disabled and non-disabled dancers creates excellent and profound experiences for audiences and participants that excite, challenge and broaden perceptions of art and ability.

With over 25 years of creating cutting edge work, Candoco presents a brand new double bill of dramatic and powerful choreography.

Note for wheelchair users: we have a limited number of wheelchair spaces in the Theatre, which have already been sold. Unfortunately we are unable to admit any more wheelchair users to the auditorium, because we are unable to guarantee safe evacuation in case of emergency. The Theatre (in our Broadway 1 screen) is on the first floor of the building, and there is a lift up to that floor. There are also stairs up into the auditorium, with a wheelchair lift on these stairs. If you have any questions about access, please call 01462 681088 or read our access information.

Let’s Talk About Dis is a playful and intimate piece that builds on an exploration of the 
dancers’ personalities and bodies, interrogating questions of what identity is and how it is formed. 
With seductive charm, Hetain challenges audiences to think beyond surface appearances, 
exposing hidden prejudices and absurd political correctness. 

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.

‘a fantastically smart piece’  
The Guardian (Let’s Talk About Dis at Queen Elizabeth Hall) 

‘These terrific dancers are brimful of mischief’  
The Guardian (Let’s Talk About Dis at Queen Elizabeth Hall) 

‘Typically uncompromising … a wild ride’  
The Observer

The show went beyond anything I could imagine, proving fruitfully (if shockingly) uncomfortable, and inspiring new ways to think about dance and disability.

★★★★ It’s communication that’s most important. And whether that’s through talking or contemporary dance, Candoco clearly still has a lot to say.

As soon as they enter the stage, the first thing that strikes me is the stunning vitality and beautiful chemistry between all dancers, not to mention their incisive dancing skills and powerful expressivity that shine through both works.
