You and I Know

Candoco Dance Company


Candoco Dance Company is known for creating powerful dance 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 Candoco dancers Joel Brown and Laura Patay to make You and I Know, a modern 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.

The company created a sensation last year when its contemporary dancers performed to over 10 million people on Strictly Come Dancing.
