FILTER: All Shows Work Elsewhere Workshops

Rsz Royaloperahouse1

Royal Ballet

First performed in 2015, Untouchable is the first work for a major ballet company by the multi-award-winning choreographer Hofesh Shechter – a Royal Ballet project The Guardian called ‘a milestone commission’.

He subverted the hierarchies of traditional ballet and created Untouchable on a 20-strong corps de ballet, who slink and judder through highly energized movement – a fascinating new language born from a marriage of two very different dance styles.

A revival of Untouchable is at the Royal Opera House on 6, 9, 10, 13, 17 November 2017.

Staatsballet Berlin

In association with Hofesh Shechter Company, Staatsballet Berlin restages Hofesh Shechter’s The Art of Not Looking Back.

Physical, complex and unrelenting Shechter’s favoured theme of ‘man against the world’ is presented in a different and entrancing light.

The show premiered on 21st April 2017 and is currently in rep.

Rsz Theater Basel

Theater Basel

In association with Hofesh Shechter Company, Theater Basel restages Hofesh Shechter’s The Fools.

Combining absurd atmosphere and dark power play, The Fools survive the rat race in a persistent struggle. The pathetic, inconsistent mess of their world’s value system, leaves them ignored and irrelevant- but to themselves.

In this piece, Hofesh Shechter explores the interplay of power in a world of hollow definitions and illusions.

The Fools premiered in Basel on 29th September 2017.

Rsz Teatro Verdi

Aterballetto

In association with Hofesh Shechter Company, Aterballetto restages Hofesh Shechter’s Wolf.

Approximately 7,106 languages divide the human race. Approximately 3.8 billion years of evolution divide all life on Earth.

Tonight those divisions collapse. Tonight, 3.8 billion years of evolution will unwind to the beat of a drum. Tonight 7,106 languages will die.

Submit to the wit and power of this New Creation by Hofesh Shechter, adapted from an earlier work, created especially for and inspired by the dancers of Aterballetto.

Aterballetto’s restaging of Wolf premiered on 19th October 2017.

Theaterhaus Stuttgart

Gauthier Dance Stuttgart

In association with Hofesh Shechter Company, Gauthier Dance restages Hofesh Shechter’s Uprising.

In Uprising seven men emerge from the shadows to bombard the stage with furious energy, bonding and sparring, making up and falling out. This highly charged work, set to a throbbing percussive score also composed by Shechter himself, leaves audiences buzzing.

The show premiered in Stuttgart on 6th July 2017 and is currently in rep.

Nuremberg

Nuremburg Ballet

In partnership with Hofesh Shechter Company, Nuremburg Ballet restages Disappearing Act.

Disappearing Act brings the scent and echoes of an old culture, practised and remembered feverishly by its community. It’s an escalating work where the creator addresses the fear of rituals, with the energy and intensity that characterises his work.

Disappearing Act will premiere on 21st April 2018.

Paris Opera Ballet

Paris Opera Ballet

In association with Hofesh Shechter Company, Paris Opera Ballet will present a new version of Hofesh Shechter’s The Art of Not Looking Back.

Physical, complex and unrelenting Shechter’s favoured theme of ‘man against the world’ is presented in a different and entrancing light.

Performances from 18 May to 08 June 2018.

Staatstheater Darmstadt

Hessisches Staatsballett

In association with Hofesh Shechter Company, Hessisches Staatsballett restages Hofesh Shechter’s In Your Rooms.

In your rooms brims with gritty physicality and is at times provocative, political and deeply personal, presenting a society that is scarily alienating and yet shockingly familiar.

The dancers reveal shifting motives, lack of control and vulnerabilities through intricate, touching encounters. The work features an original score, created by Shechter in collaboration with Nell Catchpole (The Gogmagogs). Performed live, Shechter’s hauntingly beautiful score envelops the stage as the music and dance combine forces to create a truly magical atmosphere.

The show premiered in Wiesbaden on 19th May 2017 and is currently in rep.
