Face In - Candoco Dance Company

We are thrilled that Yasmeen will be soon travelling to London to work with the Candoco Dance Companyhaving been commissioned by them to create a new work. The new creation will premiere in the Fall 2017


Yasmeen Godder is an Israeli choreographer who makes work that is seductive, disturbing, potent and personal. Her work has been presented at venues and festivals worldwide, including Lincoln Center Festival, Tokyo International Festival, Sydney Opera House and Montpelier Dance Festival.

Face In is a sensual and disturbing ode to intimacy and imagination, expressed through striking images interwoven with daring and uninhibited dance. Set to an urban indie score, Candoco invites you to bask in this wild fictional world that feels uncomfortably familiar yet strangely distorted. A world that Candoco's dancers inhabit with ease: dancing with pleasure, revealing the extreme of themselves and flirting with both the banal and the ridiculous.

This new commission joins Candoco’s existing repertory and will be touring from autumn 2017 onwards.

In June 2016, our dancers and a number of invited artists spent a week in the studio with Yasmeen. Candoco Artist Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot offers an insight into the very beginnings of the research process in her blog. Read about her experiences here.
