Hofesh Shechter Company skyrocketed to prominence by quickly becoming one of the most coveted and iconic groups in modern dance. As a trendsetter, they have won over the finicky London dance enthusiasts, and have collaborated with Sadler’s Wells. Hailing from Israel, Shechter’s dance exudes rough masculinity, full of masculine unique styles that have won him numerous major international dance awards. In his latest piece Political Mother , dancers in crouching posture suggests depression, and the anxiously distorted body movements symbolize the emotional undercurrent on the brink of surge. Then, the explosive loping, burst like a shout-out to the exhausting hardship. Played on an intense surreal stage created by Shechter, accompanied by the upbeat live music, Political Mother is bound to give you a visual and sensual experience!
