Candoco Dance Company, the world’s leading contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers, presents CounterActs, an accomplished double bill from two rising stars of the British dance scene combining mischievous questions and virtuosic performance.
Sadler’s Wells New Wave Artist, Alexander Whitley, sets sinuous and expressive movement articulations to a mesmerising score with Beheld. Featuring powerful duets and breath-taking ensemble dancing with huge swathes of fabric, this stirring performance invites audiences to consider contemporary dance in a new light.
Creator of American Boy, visual artist Hetain Patel’s critically acclaimed Let’s Talk About Dis returns to the stage. A response by Patel for Candoco, it exposes hidden prejudices and misplaced political correctness with seductive charm - a playful interrogation of identity that asks the audience to think beyond surface appearances.
