Created for Candoco Dance Company’s Vicky Malin, Matthias Sperling’s This is it was commissioned for the company’s 20th anniversary season and is the first solo commission in the company’s history. The work toys playfully with our expectations of a solo contemporary dance performer and features Vicky’s live performance of her specially-written, iTunes-released, uplifting euro-pop single This is it.
