Candoco Dance Company


Making their Dance Umbrella debut, Candoco Dance Company presents an exhilarating mix of extreme physicality and intense performance in a contrasting triple bill of new works by Bessie Award-winning choreographers Emanuel Gat (Israel/France) and Sarah Michelson (USA/UK), and internationally acclaimed Wendy Houstoun (UK).

Sarah Michelson combines a sense of grandeur with an eye for detail in a visually striking, powerful work set to an original cinematic score by acclaimed composer Pete Drungle. Emanuel's Gat's intricate sextet shows the dancers' refined musicality and delights with its detailed and exquisite movement. The seriously playful experimentalist, Wendy Houstoun, completes the programme with a humourous, understated and theatrical work.

Wendy Houstoun's piece Imperfect Storm will be BSL interpreted. The Meet the Artist session on Monday 11 October will also be BSL interpreted.

'Candoco is the company for which choreographers reserve their wildest and often most inventive work.' (The Observer)
