Uprising – In your rooms
Hofesh Shechter is dance’s most explosive choreographer, changing the map of contemporary dance with each new work. This thrilling double bill of early pieces also features music by Shechter.
In Uprising seven men emerge from the shadows to bombard the stage with furious energy, bonding and sparring, making up and falling out in a highly charged work, set to a throbbing percussive score.
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. Nine dancers reveal shifting motives, lack of control and vulnerabilities through intricate, touching encounters.
The performance features live music throughout, with a line-up of percussion, viola, cello and double bass.
