Shechter has also staged and choreographed works on leading international dance companies. Including the Royal Ballet, Netherlands Dance Theatre 1 and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.
HOME is delighted to welcome back internationally celebrated Hofesh Shechter Company with their latest work, Grand Finale. A spectacularly bold and ambitious new piece featuring ten dancers and six musicians.
Choreography and music by Hofesh Shechter design by Tom Scutt and lighting by Tom Visser. This highly anticipated new work sees the company return to live music.
Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful. Evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Filtering this spirit, Shechter creates a vision of a world part gig, part dance, part theatre and wholly original.
The production received its world premiere at La Villette in Paris in June 2017. It has since enjoyed an extensive international tour to leading venues and festivals in the UK and around the world. From Colours International Dance Festival Stuttgart, Dansens Hus Oslo, Danse Danse Montreal, Brooklyn Academy of Music New York as well as HOME.
The company’s exceptional ensemble of dancers comes from eight different countries. Including Chien-Ming Chang, Frederic Despierre, Rachel Fallon, Mickael Frappat, Yeji Kim, Kim Kohlmann, Erion Kruja, Merel Lammers, Attila Ronai, Diogo Sousa with Associate Director Bruno Guillore.
The production will start at HOME on Wed 31 Jan – Sat 3 Feb 2018
