Great Britain’s Candoco Dance Company will be in Yerevan today with members of the Mihr Theater Group to entertain journalists and offer training. The noted hearing impaired dancers from Armenia are slated to appear at the Yerevan Sports and Culture Palace.
The Candoco Dance Company is one of the world’s most prolific dance troop comprised of both disabled and non-disabled artists. Founded in 1991, the company is scheduled to give further performances in Yerevan coming up in March as well.
The whole point of what Candoco achieves is to challenge what our perceptions of dance and art are. To this end, the company gives instruction not only to help disabled artists worldwide, but to create a dynamic and lasting continuation of dance – to extend the creative process.
Inclusion in these programs is possible for those interested no matter what skill level or experience one may have. The video below offers insight into what Candoco is about.
