For Candoco Dance Company
Hot Mess is an unpredictable and anarchic performance set to a pounding, eclectic score by the award-winning Joe Newman of Alt-J.
Led by Theo’s exploration of ‘consciously unknowing’ as a vital creative source, Candoco’s phenomenal dancers fearlessly embrace spontaneity and uncertainty as they navigate an environment that is constantly in flux.
Drawing upon a manifesto (see below) art installation meets dance piece in this explosive new work by the company that continues to expand perceptions of what dance can be.
