Candoco Unlimited

Candoco presents two new dances. Marc Brew's Parallel Lines is a dramatic dance piece with beautiful string music. Claire Cunningham’s 12 is a theatrical, very playful and funny piece.

Candoco Dance Company present an evening of bold new dance featuring 12 disabled and non-disabled performers from China, the UK and Brazil.

Parallel Lines by choreographer Marc Brew draws lines across the globe. The emotive string score by Michael Galasso drives the piece forward, creating dramatic tension between the performers in their exploration of physical limitations.

With 12 Claire Cunningham invites us into a wondrous, imaginative world – a theatrical piece that plays with life’s crutches. What holds us up? What supports us? When do they tip over from something you love to something darker? The result is a riotous piece full of beauty and surreal humour.

Recommended for ages 12+

Supported by The Brazilian Embassy.
