CANDOCO Dance Company, the world’s leading contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers, will be presenting their latest commission, CounterActs, on Tuesday at Theatre Royal, Winchester.

In this double bill, Candoco Dance Company presents commissions from two rising stars of the British dance scene, Hetain Patel and Alexander Whitley.

Visual artist Hetain Patel’s critically acclaimed Let’s Talk About Dis is a playful and intimate piece exploring the dancers’ personalities and bodies, questioning what identity is and how it is formed.

While Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate Alexander Whitley’s Beheld,creates a visually striking dance piece, incorporating sinuous and expressive movement articulations.

Set to a mesmerising score by composer Nils Frahm, this is a resonant and emotive piece performed with reckless flair.

CounterActs blends playful choreography with thought-provoking ideas in a stirring programme that shows contemporary dance in a new light, while pushing boundaries and challenging notions of dance.
