Rising star of the contemporary dance world, Hofesh Shechter presents his acclaimed works Uprising and In Your Rooms. His work was recently seen by millions of viewers when he was commissioned to choreograph the opening dance sequence for E4’s hit TV series Skins.
In Uprising seven men emerge from the shadows to bombard the stage with furious energy, bonding and sparring, making up and falling out. This highly charged work, set to a throbbing percussive score, also composed by Shechter, leaves audiences buzzing.
In Your Rooms brims with gritty physicality and is at times provocative, political and deeply personal, presenting a society that is scarily alienating and yet shockingly familiar. The work features a hauntingly beautiful original score, created by Shechter in collaboration with Nell Catchpole, performed live on stage by five musicians.
“Probably the most important new dance work to be created in Britain since the millennium” The Observer, May 2007
