“The sheer joy of movement shines through” ★★★★ The Stage (on Set and Reset/Reset)

This Autumn, Candoco Dance Company presents a thrilling double bill with the world premiere of Jeanine Durning’s perpetually unique Last Shelter alongside a reprisal of their recreation of renowned choreographer Trisha Anderson’s seminal Set and Reset/Reset.

“The evening begins with Set and Reset/Reset, in which the company of disabled and non-disabled dancers move with dream-like fluidity, set to a driving Laurie Anderson score, in their 2021 reimagining of Trisha Brown’s original choreography. In contrast, Jeanine Durning’s Last Shelter unfolds uniquely at each performance. Teetering at the edge of what could be in an ever-shifting environment, this choreography highlights the velocity and precision of each dancer’s decision-making from moment to moment, somewhere between agency and collective will. After a year of working invisibly through a pandemic, it is an act of intimacy to witness the labour and desire of the dancer attending to themselves and one another, in their practice.”

Abigail Yager (Set and Reset/Reset) said, “The Set and Reset/Reset Project examines the shifting nature of choreography in relation to underlying structures that anchor a dance to itself. The process of re-construction (as opposed to replication) is a negotiation between freedom and limit – an exploration of possibility as the dancers create a new version of Trisha Brown’s landmark choreography.”

Jeanine Durning (Last Shelter) said, “What strikes me about the Candoco ensemble is their intimacy, trust and generosity toward one another and this is a perfect place from which to interrogate choreography as a container for radical togetherness and transformation.”
