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. Nine 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.
