Playing Another

Running Time Approximately 80 minutes including interval Suitable for All Candoco, the contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers, returns to Lakeside with two new full company works. Acclaimed visual artist Hetain Patel's new work for Candoco is a humorous and intimate piece exploring the dancers' invdividual personalities and physicalities, asking questions of their identity and challenging audiences to think beyond surface appearances. Hetain's TED talk Who am I? Think Again, a performative interrogation of identity, has been an internet sensation with over a million views. Thomas Hauert's Notturnino is a playful and poignant new work that takes inspiration from Tosca's Kiss, a touching documentary that follows the lives of retired opera singers living in a Milan nursing home. Using the film soundtrack, the piece is scored by fragments of conversation, reminiscences and great operatic works performed by the ageing singers. Through wit and melodrama Notturnino explores the fragility of life. Presented in partnership with Dance4. Post show discussion is available with Dance4 and will be British Sign Language interpreted.
