Description Israeli-born, UK-based choreographer Hofesh Shechter’s highly visceral, theatrical dance pieces pair explosive, almost primal movement with the exhilarating sounds and smoky atmosphere of a rock concert. A former dancer with Ohad Naharin’s Batsheva Dance Company, Shechter and his company have performed sold-out shows at Sadler’s Wells in London and to packed houses in Paris, Sydney, and Tokyo.
This season, he returns to BAM with Sun, a brand-new work featuring an expanded company of 14 dancers and an eclectic soundtrack that includes original music by Shechter himself.
