Grand Finale

Hofesh Shechter Company

The dance pieces by Hofesh Shechter Company are explosions of imagery and sound and Grand Finale is no exception. Part gig, part dance, part theatre and wholly original – there is no better way to describe the latest work of internationally acclaimed choreographer Hofesh Shechter. The London-based Israeli choreographer is considered one of the most important representatives of contemporary dance in Europe.

Spectacularly bold and ambitious, Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Filtering this irrepressible spirit, Shechter creates a vision of a world in free fall, featuring an exceptional ensemble of dancers and a live band of musicians.

‘"The mighty contemporary choreographer – a combination of dance-maker and rock-star, but with film-director sensibilities." The Times
