Six dancers performing onstage

Face In (excerpt)

Candoco Dance Company

Choreography: Yasmeen Godder

A sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through striking images interwoven with daring and uninhibited dance.

Set to an urban indie score, this contemporary dance piece invites the audience to bask in this wild fictional world that feels uncomfortably familiar yet strangely distorted. A world that the dancers inhabit with ease: dancing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous.
