Event Description

Israeli-born, UK-based choreographer Hofesh Shechter's signature blend of gritty and emotional complexity, powerful percussive grooves, and raw and honest physicality has earned his work an incomparable reputation around the world. A heart-stopping, explosive assault on the senses,Political Mother invokes an atmosphere of struggle and conflict, where repression is met with resistance and survival is paramount. A heavy metal rock band—at full tilt on a raised platform—performs Shechter's own propulsive score while the dancers move collectively, surging and collapsing in sublime counterpoint. Alive with existential fire and raw physicality, Political Motherechoes our universal search for emotional connection amid the violence and chaos of our contemporary world.
