Candoco Dance Company: CounterActs

  • Brighton Dome North Road Brighton, England, BN1 United Kingdom (map)

A new double bill combining mischievous questions and virtuosic performance.

Candoco Dance Company, the world’s leading contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers, presents CounterActs, a new double bill from two rising stars of the British dance scene. 

Visual artist Hetain Patel’s critically acclaimed Let’s Talk About Dis returns to the stage, exposing hidden prejudices and misplaced political correctness with seductive charm. 

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.

‘an absorbing work that truly pushes its dancers and the choreographic possibilities of their bodies’ Exeunt Magazine on Beheld 

‘a fantastically smart piece’ The Guardian on Let’s Talk About Dis
