TIGERTAIL PRODUCTIONS AND
FLORIDA DANCE ASSOCIATION
MIXED-ABILITY DANCE COMPANY FROM LONDON
part of the danceAble 2006 program at the Florida Dance Festival
One of the foremost dance companies internationally to integrate dancers with and without
disabilities, CandoCo sets arms, legs, torsos and wheelchairs in motion in their stunning
and fiercely honest performances. Based in London, they bring two new dramatically sensual
works to Miami, The Journey and In Praise of Folly, in which the dancers defy and embrace
physical differences as played out on the canvas of the body.
The evening will consist of two works. In the first, The Journey, the dancers defy
and embrace physical differences with startlingly sensual choreography set to a riveting
contemporary musical score. The second, In Praise of Folly, is a dramatic piece of
dance theater, inspired by the intrigues of Renaissance art, that explores the poles of
beauty and destruction played out on the canvas of the body.
danceAble is a distinctive collaborative project co-presented by
Florida Dance Association and Tigertail Productions held within the
Florida Dance Festival and throughout the year. Now in its seventh year,
this unique program focuses on dance as a vital art form and a
fundamental means of physical expression for persons with and
without disabilities. danceAble confronts traditional dance
ideologies and challenges the notion of who can create and perform.
This performance is part of danceAble, an innovative project that focuses on dance as a vital art form for persons with and without disabilities. Running from Wednesday, June 21 through Wednesday, June 28 at the Florida Dance Festival, danceAble includes a full line-up of international performances, workshops and public events, held within the Florida Dance Festival. It is jointly produced by Florida Dance Association and Tigertail Productions.
