A rhythmic, fiercely energetic and exhilarating performance from celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter and his award winning company Shechter II.
Contemporary Dance 2.0 unleashes the intensity of Shechter’s signature ensemble work combined with an eclectic sound-score with euphoric feel and throbbing beats.
In a work that is dipped in ironic references to pop culture and making a playful take on Shechter’s own art form, in Contemporary Dance 2.0 only one thing is certain, the dancers do it their way.
Inspired by the original production created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani in 2019 Contemporary Dance 2.0 is re-imagined by Shechter II, the very best of the next generation of world-class performers aged 18-25.
Contemporary Dance 2.0 is produced by Hofesh Shechter Company and co- commissioned by Düsseldorf Festival!, Espace 1789 Saint-Ouen, with production support from Théâtre de la Ville Paris, Teatro Comunale Città di Vicenza, and a production residency at Arts Depot, London
Hofesh Shechter Company gratefully receives support towards the delivery of Shechter II 2022, which includes core funding from John Ellerman Foundation. Hofesh Shechter Company is supported using public funding through Arts Council England and benefits from the support of BNP Paribas Foundation for the development of its projects.
Uplifting and strangely emotional.
The mighty contemporary choreographer – a combination of dance-maker and rock-star, but with film-director sensibilities.
