Contemporary Dance Masterclass with world renown Hofesh Shechter Company UK.

The company will be presenting their work Grand Finale in the Adelaide Festival.

About the Choreographer:
Hofesh Shechter is no ordinary choreographer. Israeli born, London-based, Shechter exploded into the contemporary dance world when, as a relative unknown, his 2007 work In Your Rooms was hailed as one of the most important new works of the millennium.

Since then, he’s built an arrestingly powerful body of work, almost singlehandedly creating a new genre: part dance, part gig, part theatre. Critics try to encapsulate his work with words like ‘exultant’, ‘visceral’, and ‘ecstatic’, and certainly his trademark gestural language – derived from folkdance, military exercise, club-dancing and even the gym – is addictively hypnotic.

About The Masterclass:
This Hofesh Shechter Company professional masterclass opens with a class in the style of the company to enable a full understanding of the movement principles of Hofesh’s work, and his key use of improvisation in his choreography. This is then followed by the opportunity to learn a short extract of Hofesh Shechter’s latest repertoire Grand Finale. The session will end with a short Q&A, to give those participating the chance to ask those burning questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
