HOFESH SHECHTER – Sun


NATIONAL PREMIERE
30 September – 1 October 9pm
Teatro Argentina

EVENING PROGRAMME

«The sun is beautiful, bright and we all crave for it, but it’s also very hot and dangerous», says Hofesh Shechter about “Sun”, his new creation. A powerful dancing performance and a step forward into Anglo-Israeli choreographer’s research. His style is influenced by Middle Eastern and North European folk dance; Shechter reinterprets both into energetic and contemporary group choreographies, set up in solos,  furious rhythms and a strong and aggressive soundtrack -partially created by himself or drew from a wide repertory that goes from classic to rock music. “Sun” is a performance about power and its logics, which can be cruel and violent sometimes but also grotesque.
