Notturnino // Set and Reset/Reset


Restaging project with Trisha Brown Dance Company

Candoco Dance Company (UK)

Candoco Dance Company’s double bill features the landmark contemporary dance piece, Set and Reset/Reset, created in collaboration with the Trisha Brown Dance Company and Notturnino a humorous and poetic full-company work inspired by retired opera singers by Thomas Hauert.

Originally choreographed on a cast of non-disabled dancers in 1983, Set and Reset/Reset is an iconic piece of contemporary dance, restaged by Candoco in collaboration with Trisha Brown Dance Company.
Performed to a contagious score by renowned multi-media artist Laurie Anderson, this ground-breaking piece is revived with a new set design and Candoco’s unique perspective.

  

  

Brussels-based Swiss choreographer Thomas Hauert’s new piece for Candoco Dance Company, Notturnino, takes inspiration from ‘Tosca’s Kiss’, a documentary about retired opera singers. Delicately balancing the spontaneity found in children’s games and the nostalgic memories of old age, this is a tightly structured piece of improvisation where the audience witness the dancers’ decisions resulting in a truly unique experience for each performance.
