Face In / Hot Mess

Date: Tuesday, Feb 25 - Wednesday, Feb 26
Venue: Bristol Old Vic
Price: £12-£20

Candoco are a UK company of seven extraordinary disabled and non-disabled dancers. The pieces they produce are always outstanding, innovative works of art, and are not to be missed.

They return to Bristol in February with two striking works: Face In, choreographed by Yasmeen Godder, and Hot Mess, by Theo Clinkard.

Set to an urban indie score, Face In plays with masks, perceptions, and unbounded facial expressions.


Hot Mess is an anarchic performance set to an eclectic score by award-winning music artist, Joe Newman of alt-J. Both works are performed in Candoco’s inimitable fun, accessible and beautiful style.



This performance is part of Bristol Old Vic’s month of dance, part of its commendable mission to shine a light on an art form that needs championing in Bristol. There is a special discount offer for the three dance pieces: Face In / Hot Mess, Chotto Xenos and Rambert2. Visitors can save 10% if they book 2 dance shows, or save 15% if they book all three. The discount will be automatically applied at checkout. Tickets can be booked at or by calling 0117 987 7877.

Candoco’s Face In / Hot Mess double bill will be at Bristol Old Vic on Tuesday February 25 to Wednesday February 26 2020.  For more information visit
