Since exploding onto the dance scene with Uprising/In your rooms Shechter and his young and talented dance company have established themselves as a leading force in the UK dance scene. Following a career as a dancer, Shechter moved to the UK in 2002 making his choreographic debut in 2004. A former drummer in a rock band Shechter creates the musical scores for each of his dance creations and his atmospheric, groovy music alongside his company’s unique physicality has earned his work acclaim around the world.

Political Mother is performed by 10 dancers and accompanied by Shechter’s cinematic score featuring a band of live drummers and electric guitarists.

Political Mother promises to draw audiences back to Shechter’s word whose astonishing unisons, percussive grooves and a raw and honest physicality mark him as one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent years.

Political Mother is commissioned by Brighton Dome and Festival, Sadler’s Wells and Movimentos-Festwochen der Autostadt in Wolfsburg. The work is co-commissioned by Biennale de la Danse de Lyon, Théâtre de la Ville, Romaeuropa and Mercat de Les Flors.

Produced in collaboration with Theatre Royal, Plymouth and with support from DanceXchange, Birmingham. The score for Political Mother was created in collaboration with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and barbicanbite09, with research supported by Jerwood Studio at Sadler’s Wells. Collaboration with FOS supported by Outset.

Hofesh Shechter Company is supported by Arts Council England and is Resident Company at Brighton Dome.

Door Closes at 7h30
