CANDOCO DANCE COMPANY PRESENT
THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 New works by top-choreographers Rafael Bonachela & Arthur Pita. Inspired by country and death songs, Arthur Pita tells a macabre yet humorous tale of a sticky family situation in his work The Stepfather. In this twisted yarn the dancers are transformed into skittish characters who writhe their way through brazen dances and intimate interludes. With iconic composer Scott Walker setting the scene for a sinister and primal ball, Rafael Bonachela’s choreography And Who Shall Go To The Ball? cuts through the space, pushing the dancers into extreme connections, entangled in each others bodies, throwing their partners into flight, only to catch and grab and throw again and again and again. CandoCo is one of the UK's leading contemporary dance companies' consisting of disabled and non-disabled dancers. “Brilliant and bracing … gripping to watch” The Guardian 2006 Contain some strobe lighting and scenes of a mature nature.
