Twisting perception of what dance is, who can dance and who enjoys it – an evening of three diverse dance works by Paralympic closing ceremony performers Candoco Dance Company.

One of Candoco’s highlights is the restaging of one of Trisha Brown’s signature works, which confirmed her as a pioneer of contemporary dance. Set to the original upbeat, contagious Laurie Anderson score, Set and Reset/Reset with Trisha Brown Dance Company is a fluid, joyful work of pure dance.

Following his Evening Standard Theatre Award for The Most Incredible Thing with the Pet Shop Boys, choreographer Javier de Frutos returns to Candoco for the third time with his new duet Studies for C. Inspired by the poetic perfumes of Tennessee Williams and set to traditional Mexican Ranchera music, his duet is a celebration of difference and rebellion: ‘I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees’ (revolutionary Emiliano Zapata).

In the final work of the evening, renowned theatre and dance artist Wendy Houstoun combines movement with text and meaning with humour in Imperfect Storm. In a performance loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest, expect elaborate costumes and theatrical movements giving it a truly unique style.

An SLI (Sign Language Interpreter) will be provided in Wendy Houstoun’s piece.
