Hofesh Shechter Company – Shechter II
Political Mother Unplugged
choreography Hofesh Shechter
Ten years after the creation of Political Mother, one of his choreographic “manifestos”, Hofesh Shechter re-proposes its Unplugged version: a grand-scale work about political indoctrination and totalitarianism where new creative energies are infused by Schechter’s junior company of highly selected elements. Born and raised in Israel before moving to London in 2002, Shechter has reflected the experiences of his youth in a series of works that come together in this final Political Mother. All the distinctive elements of his dance are here, from the enthralling use of tribal rhythms and dances to a lighting design that suggestively partitions the stage space: hypnotic, uncanny, hard-hitting.
