Looking for murderously contemporary dance? Or maybe you think that dance isn’t quite for you? Let Hofesh Shechter take you on a not so merry dance with this double bill. It comprises the already acclaimed Clowns, a disturbing examination of violence and the way it is used as entertainment and a new cinematic piece, The Fix, about the human condition. Performed by a cast of 10, this should be dance to die for.
A thrilling new double bill by internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter, presenting two distinctly contrasting pieces for our times. With a sarcastic nod to our ever-growing indifference to violence, Clowns unleashes a whirlwind of choreographed anarchy, asking the question of how far we are willing to go in the name of entertainment. Shechter’s new creation, The Fix, brings a tender, fragile energy to the stage. It offers a human, raw and compassionate moment where violence, tenderness and hope are all laid bare through Shechter’s achingly beautiful, cinematic lens. Clowns contains intermittent, loud percussive music.
