Candoco: Counteracts

17 Apr

Theatre Royal Winchester

Jewry Street, Winchester

SO23 8SB

In this new double bill, Candoco presents commissions from two of the most exciting artistic talents working in the UK today. Visual artist Hetain Patel’s Let’s Talk About Dis is a playful and intimate piece that builds on an exploration of the dancers’ personalities and bodies, interrogating questions of what identity is and how it is formed. With seductive charm, Hetain challenges audiences to think beyond surface appearances, exposing hidden prejudices and absurd political correctness. Alexander Whitley’s Beheld creates a visually striking dance piece, incorporating sinuous and expressive movement articulations. Set to a mesmerising score by composer Nils Frahm, this is a resonant and emotive piece performed with reckless flair. “a fantastically smart piece” The Guardian on Let’s Talk About Dis “Powerful and joyful” The Stage on Beheld ★ ★ ★ ★ BSL signed performance Includes post-show talk (BSL signed) Recommended Age: All ages welcome (please note that Let’s Talk About Dis explores some adult themes) Running Time: approx. 1hr (plus interval)
