Yasmeen Godder: Face In
& Hetain Patel: Let’s Talk About Dis

Candoco Dance Company is a company of disabled and non-disabled performers. Here they present a dramatic and powerful new double bill.

Yasmeen Godder’s Face In is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through striking images and daring uninhibited dance all set to an urban indie score.

Hetain Patel’s Let’s Talk About Dis questions identity and how it is formed. He challenges audiences to think beyond surface appearances, exposing hidden prejudices and absurd political correctness.


£15, £12 concessions, £8 for school groups of 8+

Suitable for all ages with some adult themes - contact for details
