- Due to the sanitary crisis, the Hofesh Shechter company has decided to renounce to the Tour. We are sorry to announce this show cannot be held. Information
A thrilling new double bill by internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter, presenting two distinctly contrasting pieces of contemporary dance for our times.
With a sarcastic nod to our ever-growing indifference to violence, Clowns, originally created for Nederlands Dans Theater 1 and later produced as a film for the BBC, unleashes a whirlwind of choreographed anarchy, asking, “How far are we willing to go in the name of entertainment?”
In stark contrast, Shechter’s new creation, The Fix, brings a tender, fragile energy to the stage. It offers a raw and compassionate moment to balance the forces of aggression and violence that press on us daily. Violence, tenderness and hope are all laid bare through Shechter’s achingly beautiful, cinematic lens.
Performed by ten of his inimitable dancers and accompanied by the epic sounds of a Shechter-composed score, Double Murder explores painful truths and delves into our deepest emotions.
