About this show

CandoCo has gained a reputation as the world's leading company of disabled and non-disabled dancers.

Candoco Dance Company - the renowned contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers - presents a restaged version of J?r?me Bel's award-winning The Show Must Go On, bringing together a UK-wide cast of 20 performers, 19 pop songs and one DJ. The Show Must Go On was created in 2001 and is one of the iconic works in the career of French choreographer J?r?me Bel. The show examines the relationship between art and life, constantly surprising and challenging the viewer's expectations. Controlled by a DJ and audio feed, the performers follow lyrics of the songs, ranging from musicals to well-loved pop songs. Described as "a mischievously entertaining conceptualist who is less interested in movement than in messing with your head" (The Guardian), Bel is famous for challenging expectations.
