Candoco Dance Company presented an evening of bold new dance featuring 12 disabled and non-disabled performers from China, the UK, and Brazil.

With '12' Claire Cunningham invites us into a wondrous, imaginative world - a theatrical piece that plays with life's crutches. What holds us up? What supports us? When do they tip over from something you love to something darker? The result is a riotous piece full of childlike beauty and surreal humour.

...We can simply watch and marvel...
