Candoco Dance Company created a sensation last year when its contemporary dancers performed to over 10 million people on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. Renowned for its profound, boundary-pushing work, the company strives to continually expand perceptions of what dance can be. This year, Candoco’s company of 7 disabled and non-disabled dancers brings two gripping works by Theo Clinkard and Yasmeen Godder to Nottingham.
New work by Theo Clinkard (title TBC)
Theo Clinkard’s bold new work for Candoco brings together an exceptional artistic team that includes British band alt-J’s Joe Newman, who has composed the score for the piece. This is the first time Joe has written music for the stage. Speaking about the collaboration, Theo Clinkard said; “I’ve always found listening to his music to be a deeply physical experience and think we both are driven by an appreciation for both personal and the anthemic, so I was really excited when he accepted my invite to collaborate.” With recent creations for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Danza Contemporanea de Cuba and the acclaimed work created for his own company, Theo has steadily built an international reputation for his affecting and visually arresting work that foregrounds the communicative and empathetic brilliance of the moving body.

Face In by Yasmeen Godder
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.
Yasmeen Godder is an Israeli choreographer who makes work that is seductive, disturbing, potent and personal. Her work has been presented at venues and festivals worldwide, including Lincoln Center Festival, Tokyo International Festival, Sydney Opera House and Montpelier Dance Festival.
This piece is co-commissioned by Festival Oriente Occidente and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
