Candoco Dance Company are delighted to bring the finale of our Eastern European tour to Yerevan, Armenia, with a critically-acclaimed double bill of striking works.

Alexander Whitley, a classically trained dancer and Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate, has become known for his daring and virtuosic choreography. In Beheld, seven dancers explore the possibilities and constraints of the space to consider how we look and what we see. The evening’s second work, Set and Reset/Reset, is a restaging of landmark contemporary dance piece, Set and Reset, by Trisha Brown. This ground-breaking production is performed to a contagious score by renowned multi-media artist Laurie Anderson.
