Perfection becomes warped and harmony gives way to a visceral depiction of antagonism and violence in Shechter’s disruptive work, Sun. From the courtly idyll that sets the scene to the clean, spare vision of a ‘perfect’ world, Shechter’s choreography embraces frenetic abandon and his signature understated intricacy in a work that confronts the pastoral horror of colonialism with a hint of sharp humour. A cast of 14 dancers is accompanied by an eclectic soundtrack that includes original music by Shechter.
Hofesh Shechter is one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary artists, gaining international acclaim for his raw, honest choreography and atmospheric music scores. The international dancers of Hofesh Shechter Company have achieved worldwide renown touring his hit shows Political Mother, Uprising, The Art of Not Looking Back, In Your Rooms and now Sun.

Audience Talk after the show on Fr 11th March.

“He’s still the only dance-maker on earth even attempting shows this eye-poppingly packed with wit, energy and ambition, and three cheers to him for that.”  Mark Monahan, ****The Telegraph
