Following in the flightpath of two flight attendants, Tom Roden’s new collaboration with Candoco Dance Company invites audiences to embark on a journey from laughter to tears, slipping seamlessly between the everyday and the poetic.
Drawing on Roden’s experience across art-forms as theatre-maker, comedian, choreographer and dancer, the playful and poignant work will visit festivals and outdoor areas for free performances across the country throughout the summer. This weekend, A Graceful Act of Stupidity will arrive in Bournemouth.
Danced with charm and cheek, Annie Edwards and Jemima Hoadley interweave full-bodied dancing with spoken word, gestural detail and British Sign Language in a microcosm of joy and pathos.
This new outdoor duet follows on from the success of Candoco’s collaboration with Arlene Phillips on You and I Know which has toured as part of Candoco’s repertoire since 2016.
When: 30th June 2019, 12pm & 2.30pm
Where: The Square, Bournemouth Town Centre & Seafront (part of the PDSW Festival of Dance)
