“When I came to Candoco it was clear to me that I was coming to work with a community”
—Yasmeen Godder, choreographer of Face In
From the Bird’s Nest in Beijing to the London Paralympics closing ceremony to outdoor spaces that catch stray passers-by, Candoco has spent 28 years sharing its work all over the world. The company has commissioned such preeminent choreographers as Siobhan Davies, Emanuel Gat, and Hofesh Shechter, building an expansive body of work to match its expansive vision.
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 take on “the most beloved and irresistible work of postmodern dance” (The New York Times), Trisha Brown’s Set and Reset, originally commissioned by BAM for its first Next Wave in 1983. In collaboration with Trisha Brown Dance Company, Candoco restages Brown’s original guidelines and choreographic phrases to include disabled dancers for the first time. Israeli-American choreographer Yasmeen Godder worked closely with the company to create Face In, an uninhibited piece that’s sensual, disturbing, and ridiculous by turns—but always deeply personal.
