“There is no sitting in thoughtful contemplation at a Shechter gig. For pure, heart-pounding excitement, there is simply no one to touch him.” – Daily Express
Following January’s sell-out show Grand Finale, internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter returns with SHOW, a wild and wicked performance composed of three acts.
Performed by the hottest new talent of the Hofesh Shechter Company, SHOW is composed of three acts: The Entrance, Clowns and Exit.
Combining Hofesh’s bold, exhilarating and tribal choreography with a pulsating score, SHOW revolves around a group of anarchic performers as they play their parts in a macabre circus of comedy, murder and desire.
SHOW offers a bitingly comic vision of a topsy-turvy world where fools can be kings and kings fools, performed in the company’s unique and unforgettable theatre-dance-rock-gig style.
Clowns originally debuted to rapturous acclaim at NDT in 2016 and now returns alongside new material by Hofesh Shechter.
“One of the sharpest, most daring choreographers/composers working today” – Vogue
“A breath-taking and mesmerising spectacle. SHOW is a tribal rush (of) circus parade, baroque ball, techo rave, carnival and guerrilla war” – Le Monde
SHOW is produced in association with HOME Manchester and Lyric Hammersmith, and received production support from Fondazione I Teatri Reggio Emilia and a production residency at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Brighton.
