Hofesh Shechter Company — barbarians Tickets
Sadler's Wells, London
Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter’s caustic and thrilling trilogy returns: three wildly different takes on intimacy, passion and the banality of love.
Revealing Shechter’s choreography at its most elegant and intimate, the barbarians in love opens the evening. Six white-clad figures move as one to the strains of an ecclesiastic baroque score. This world is soon exploded in tHE bAD, when innocence is lost, and its trance-like dub-step grooves transition into the final piece, a darkly emotional duet.
"A fascinating, volatile evening, as cerebral as it is crazy" - DAILY TELEGRAPH
Featuring world-class dancers and a powerful score, this is the ultimate visceral experience, from the creator of the modern classic Political Mother.
