“It’s been a pleasure to work with you on bringing Candoco to Leeds. I’ve felt very well supported by the company and given the quality of the work, and its obvious appeal to our audiences, I hope to be able to bring the company back in the future.

2011/12 – Turning 20
…an inspired choice for the company we can simply watch the perpetual motion, the slipknot formations, the off-the-cuff accents and accidents – and marvel. intriguing.
The result is fluid dance – elegant, exciting and very playful. Given the occasion, it is a worthy choice.
Cloud Dance Fest
Wendy Houstoun’s Imperfect Storm really illuminates Candoco’s fine performers… the result is exquisitely ordered chaos in which, with typical Houstoun legerdemain, every dancer’s character is perfectly and poignantly defined. Delicious and very funny.
Sarah Michelson’s The Hangman… stylish, phenomenally muscular, requiring extraordinary strength and a superb addition to the repertory… Imperfect Storm was an absolute joy and Candoco is on tremendous form.
Wahoo for Emanuel Gat’s In Translation…
2008/09 - works by Hofesh Shechter & Nigel Charnock

Candoco continue their smart, effortlessly trend surfing commissioning policy
The Guardian 2007
Candoco’s cast are excellent – the best the company has ever fielded
The Guardian 2007
2005/2006- works by Fin Walker & Athina Vhala
The troupe’s aim isn’t to worthily debunk our preconceptions. It’s to put on a performance that’s thought-prodding, vital and beautiful. On all three counts, they don’t disappoint.
The Independent 2006
The latest programme is typically uncompromising
The Observer 2006
Breathtaking for its skill, athleticism and primal passion
The Miami Herald 2005
Uplifting and thought provoking. A double-bill that crackles with personality, individuality, passion and humour
2002/2003 – works by Javier de Frutos, Fin Walker and Jamie Watton
One of the most varied and satisfying mixed bills in ages. Alert and beautifully performed, Walker’s dance sharpens the mind and makes the heart beat faster.
Candoco’s new programme is its best yet. A triple bill that not only builds beautifully but deepens and darkens as it goes along
Candoco reinvented the boundaries of dance by proving that virtuosity wasn’t confined to the able bodied. They perform work of poignant grace and shocking physical bravado. They also stripped disability art of its last vestiges of political correctness.
