A triple bill of new works by Candoco Dance Company opened last night for two nights at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London. Renditions consists of The Hangman by Sarah Michelson, In Translation by Emanuel Gat and Imperfect Storm by Wendy Houston. I was invited by Co-Artistic Directors Pedro Machado and Stine Nilsen to the dress rehearsal to draw The Hangman.candoco Bettina

Welly O’Brian and Kate Marsh of Candoco will be performing with Laban students in the installation Floor of The Forest in the QEH foyer on October 15th, 16th and 17th to coincide with Trisha Brown Dance Company’s Repertory Evening. My drawings will be posted for that event.
