Candoco International Lab in Armenia Yerevan, 3-7 October 2017

Candoco Dance Company and British Council Armenia are delighted to be working in partnership to deliver Candoco’s International Lab in Armenia. The Lab is a unique opportunity for dancers to come together, take risks, test new ideas and share practice.

This Lab will be led by Candoco dancers Joel Brown and Laura Patay and Candoco’s Rehearsal Director Susanna Recchia. The week offers an exciting opportunity for local and international, disabled and non-disabled artists to build creative, choreographic and performance skills together as well as developing inclusive teaching practice.
