Audience feedback - The Show Must Go On

Candoco Dance Company & Jerome Bel
Following the premiere of Candoco Dance Company & Jérôme Bel’s The Show Must Go On at Sadler’s Wells on 20 & 21 March, audience members give their impressions and thoughts.

The Show Must Go On is one of the iconic works by choreographer Jérôme Bel, which examines the relationship between art and life, constantly surprising and challenging the viewer's expectations.

In this production Candoco Dance Company, the renowned contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled performers, brings together a UK-wide cast of twenty performers, nineteen pop songs and one DJ.Controlled by a DJ and audio feed, the performers follow lyrics of the songs, ranging from musicals to well-loved pop songs. 

“The choreography crackles with an energy that makes you realise just how versatile, how unstinting, the dancers are. Wow!” The Herald
