Double Bill

Embracing diversity. Let's Start with Exploring the Differences.

In 1991, Candoco Dance Company became the first professional dance company to present both disabled and non-disabled artists and it soon became a world leader in the practice of inclusive dance. Candoco doesn't talk about its work as rehabilitation or physiotherapy, it makes boundary challenging art that seeks to explore the notion of what dance can be.

This year, Candoco's company of seven disabled and non-disabled dancers brings a double bill of thought-provoking and powerful choreography to Taiwan. Face In by Yasmeen Godder is a sensual ode to intimacy and imagination expressed through daring and uninhibited dance. While, Hetain Patel's Let's Talk About Dis is playful and intimate piece that exposes hidden prejudices and misplaced political correctness with seductive charm.

Candoco Dance Company

Candoco Dance Company holds an internationally recognised reputation as a leader in inclusive practice as best practice. Candoco's bold approach and powerful collaborations create distinctive performances and far-reaching learning experiences that seek to encourage artists and audiences to question #whatdancecanbe. Candoco tours all over the world, notably the company was invited to perform at the Bird's Nest in Beijing and the Olympic Stadium in London alongside Coldplay at the Paralympic Closing Ceremony in 2012.

“…raucous, challenging and tender work” – The Guardian
“Typically uncompromising … a wild ride”- The Observer on Candoco Dance Company
“It was good to see Candoco looking so strong. The dancers presented good comedy skills and strong characters throughout, confirming the artistic vision of the company to gather diverse personalities and highlight their exceptional values as they look into new possibilities for contemporary dance. ”-Seeing dance
