Candoco Dance CompanyDouble Bill: Face In / Hot Mess
Bridging the mainstream and the experimental, Candoco's bold approach and powerful collaborations create distinctive performances and far-reaching learning experiences.
Following CounterActs in 2016, Candoco's company of seven disabled and non-disabled actors returns to Bristol Old Vic with two gripping works by internationally renowned choreographers Yasmeen Godder and Theo Clinkard.
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
The Guardian on Face In at Sadler's Wells, 2018
An unpredictable and anarchic performance set to an eclectic score by the award-winning Joe Newman of Alt-J. Led by Theo Clinkard's exploration of 'consciously unknowing' as a vital creative source, Candoco's dancers fearlessly embrace spontaneity and uncertainty as they navigate an environment that is constantly in flux. Danced amidst a striking design, art installation meets dance piece in this explosive new work that continues to expand perceptions of what dance can be.
