The Stepfather (2007)

Season 2007/2008

Choreographed by Arthur Pita

Inspired by country and death songs, Arthur Pita tells a macabre yet humorous tale of a sticky family situation. In this twisted yarn the Candoco dancers are transformed into skittish characters who writhe their way through brazen dances and intimate interludes. With a ukulele, and a noose they unravel this murderous “dansical”.

This is a work of perverse originality, fabulously staged and expertly performed
