Candoco Dance Company | British Dance Edition 2010 | 3rd-6th Feb, Birmingham, UK

 

 

Candoco Dance Company was founded in 1991 by Celeste Dandeker and Adam Benjamin. The company developed from workshops led by Celeste and Adam and grew quickly into the first company of its kind in the UK – a professional dance company specialising in the integration of disabled and non-disabled dancers.

Demand for Candoco’s work has led to a formidable touring schedule, both in the UK and abroad. The company currently tours around 20 dates each year in the UK, and a number of international dates through The British Council and independent promoters. Candoco has toured to over 50 countries, visiting Europe, Australia, North and South America, Asia and Africa.

“Candoco reinvented the boundaries of dance by proving that virtuosity wasn’t confined to the able bodied.”

Judith Mackrell, The Guardian
