Internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter has been supported by and presented at the Théâtres de la Ville twice before, first on the occasion of the European premiere of Sun in 2013 and then with his trilogy barbarians in 2016. Having developed a strong relationship with the choreographer, the desire emerged to create a more ambitious event that would allow Luxembourg audiences to see the full spectrum of his work. This creative residency does exactly that: over the course of a whole week, Hofesh Shechter Company will perform three exceptional pieces of work; Political Mother, SHOW and Grand Finale.
Despite a busy international touring schedule since its inception ten years ago, Hofesh Shechter Company still maintains a strong ethos of sharing their knowledge and during the residency there will be many opportunities to delve into the world of Hofesh’s work through talks and workshops. A drummer himself, Shechter creates the music scores for each of his dance creations and his raw, atmospheric music alongside his company’s unique physicality has earned his work acclaim around the world.
