About: Clowns/New Creation

Hofesh Shechter has been described as ‘one of the British dance scene’s hottest properties, the creator of works that are full of raw, visceral energy, set to blasting percussive scores that he composes himself ’ (New York Times). The internationally-acclaimed choreographer, whose landmark pieces include Political Mother and 2017’s Grand Finale, now brings his unique, high-energy work to the Lyric Hammersmith for the first time, as part of a UK and world tour.

Shechter’s blackly comic portrayal of a group of anarchic clowns was rapturously received at Nederlands Dans Theater in 2016, and he now creates a brand new companion piece to sit alongside it. With its razor-sharp lighting and pulsating score, Shechter’s work has the energy of a rock gig combined with beautiful, moving choreography.

Clowns/ New Creation is performed by Shechter II, the 8 strong apprentice company chosen from the most inspiring young talent across the world.

Produced by Hofesh Shechter Company. Clowns was originally commissioned by NDT (2016).

The evening, Clowns/New Creation, is produced in association with HOME Manchester and the Lyric Hammersmith, and received production support from Fondazione I Teatri Reggio Emilia and a production residency at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Brighton.
