Candoco Dance Company
CHOREOGRAPHY BY TRISHA BROWN AND JEANINE DURNING

 
Part of Spring 2022
“the most beloved and irresistible work of postmodern dance”
The New York Times on Set and Reset
The first professional company in the UK dedicated to the integration of disabled and non-disabled dancers, Candoco is driven by world-class artists committed to challenging what dance can be. They restage Trisha Brown’s iconic Set and Reset, originally commissioned by BAM for its first Next Wave in 1983. In collaboration with Trisha Brown Dance Company, Candoco takes Brown’s original guidelines and choreographic phrases to include dancers with disabilities for the first time in Set and Reset/Reset. Jeanine Durning’s Last Shelter is a unique, ever-shifting performance experiment that explores the enduring human desire to build something together.
For reasons out of the company's control, Face In by Yasmeen Godder has been replaced with Last Shelter by Jeanine Durning.
“raucous, challenging and tender”
