Aclowns

SHOW

Choreography & Music by Hofesh Shechter
Performed by Shechter II

From internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter, SHOW is a wild and wicked performance composed of three acts: The Entrance, Clowns and Exit – performed by the hottest new talent of Hofesh Shechter Company.

Combining Hofesh’s bold, exhilarating and tribal choreography with a pulsating score, SHOW revolves around a group of anarchic performers as they play their parts in a macabre circus of comedy, murder and desire.

SHOW offers a bitingly comic vision of a topsy-turvy world where fools can be kings and kings fools, performed in the company’s unique and unforgettable theatre-dance-rock-gig style.
Clowns originally debuted to rapturous acclaim at NDT in 2016 and now returns alongside new material by Hofesh Shechter.

SHOW premiered at  Teatro Ariosto Reggio Emilia on 17 March 2018
