One evening, two performances! As if that was not enough, our stage will see one of the world’s best known inclusive group and icon of the contemporary British dance theatre: Candoco Dance Company!
Candoco is a company of passionate, dedicated artists, including both disabled and non-disabled performers. Not only are they fantastically brilliant dancers, but also show that dance is so much more than an eye-pleasing form!
As part of CK ZAMEK’s Common Theatre programme, Candoco Dance Company will present two of their performances: Face In, directed by Israeli choreographer Yasmeen Godder and Hot Mess, directed by Theo Clinkard. (The duration of each performance is approx. 30 minutes, with a brief intermission.)
Hot Mess, dir. Theo Clinkard
According to a dictionary definition, “hot mess” is a person or thing that is spectacularly unsuccessful or disordered, especially one that is a source of peculiar fascination. Created by the internationally renowned choreographer and designer Theo Clinkard, Hot Mess is an unpredictable and anarchic performance set to a pounding, eclectic score by award-winning music artist, Joe Newman of alt-J. (do note that this is Newman’s first ever score for a stage piece!). Guided by Theo’s exploration of ‘consciously unknowing’ as a vital element of creative action, Candoco’s phenomenal dancers boldly embrace spontaneity and uncertainty as they navigate an environment in a state of constant flux. We will thus have an opportunity to see and explosive performance combining art installation and dance, delivered by the company that continues to expand perceptions of what the art of dance can be.
Face In by Yasmeen Godder is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through striking images interwoven with daring and uninhibited dance. Candoco invites you to become immersed in a wild fictional world that feels uncomfortably familiar yet strangely distorted, to the accompaniment of urban indie. It is a world in which the dancers feel thoroughly at ease: dancing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous. Yasmeen Godder is an Israeli-American choreographer whose pieces seduce, disturb, emanate power and exude deeply personal spirit. Her work has been presented at venues and festivals worldwide, including Lincoln Center Festival, Tokyo International Festival, Sydney Opera House and Montpellier Dance Festival.
