Hofesh Shechter new production

Posted: May 19, 2010

Hofesh Shechter presents his highly anticipated new work Political Mother, the first full length piece for his internationally acclaimed company since he exploded onto the world stage with Uprising/In your rooms.

Political Mother brims with Shechter’s emotional and gritty complexity, powerful percussive grooves and a raw and honest physicality. Performed by ten dancers the work is accompanied by Shechter’s own cinematic score featuring a band of live drummers and electric guitarists.

Following the world wide acclaim of Uprising/In your rooms, which DTP toured in 2008, Shechter and his young and talented dance company have quickly established themselves as a leading force in the UK dance scene. Shechter moved to the UK in 2002 and following a career as a dancer he made his choreographic debut two years later withFragments. A former drummer in a rock band, Shechter creates the musical scores for each of his dance creations and his atmospheric, groovy music alongside his company’s unique physicality has earned his work an unrivalled reputation around the world.

The overwhelming response to Shechter’s work in recent years, both critically and from his audience, has singled him out as one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent years.

Political Mother tours the world in 2010 so catch it while you can!
