Candoco Dance Company

Bitesize Barbican: You and I Know

21 April 2017 / 12:30, 13:30
Foyer, Level G
Booking not required

Bitesize Barbican is a series of free performances presented over lunchtime on the FreeStage in the Barbican foyer.

Making their first appearance at the Barbican, Candoco Dance Company are known for their work with disabled and non-disabled dancers to create experiences that excite and challenge perceptions of art and ability.

Arlene Phillips, a trailblazer in popular dance choreography for over 40 years, has collaborated with dancers Joel Brown and Laura Patay, in a new romantic duet. Danced with passion and sensitivity to a collection of pop songs, this is a potent and emotive exploration of falling in and out of love over and over, often with the same person.
