Superstar Choreographer Hofesh Shechter Creates a Stir

Want to be shaken, stirred and exhilarated by one of the very best new dance choreographers on the planet?

You simply cannot afford to miss Hofesh Shechter‘s stunning new piece of work Political Mother here at the Playhouse on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 October.

Prepare to feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Prepare to witness Shechter‘s emotional, gritty complexity and raw physicality. Prepare to experience breathtaking choreography and a pure punch of adrenaline.

A former rock drummer, Israel-born Shechter has created a work that spits blood, hurls fireballs into the audience and leaves you shaken, stirred and blasted. It is a sustained howl of anger against all political systems that would refute the rights of the individual.

The Daily Express

This is one angry piece, delivered like a roar of defiance in the face of an omnipotent, malevolent force. It’s visceral, painful and very, very exciting

The Times

With its surreal concept, punchy, furiously energetic choreography and thunderous rock score, played live, this substantial new work is a terrific piece of staging and an experience like no other

The Sunday Times

as ambitious and as heads-down, hair-prickingly exhilarating as modern dance gets
