Hofesh Shechter’s Clowns

Dirigé, chorégraphié et composé par Hofesh Shechter, Clowns présente 10 de ses danseurs jouant une comédie macabre de meurtre et de désir, et demande : jusqu’où irons-nous au nom du divertissement ? La pièce combine la chorégraphie audacieuse, exaltante et tribale de Hofesh avec une partition cinématographique percussive et la caméra se rapproche de l’ensemble de danseurs talentueux
Venant de 8 pays différents, il s'agit de Chien-Ming Chang, Frédéric Despierre, Rachel Fallon, Mickaël Frappat, Yeji Kim, Kim Kohlmann, Erion Kruja, Merel Lammers, Attila Ronai et Diogo Sousa. 


Créée par Hofesh Shechter en 2016, le spectacle Clowns fera une tournée au Royaume-Uni et en Europe en 2018.

Le film Hofesh Shechter's Clowns a été commandé par la BBC dans le cadre du volet "Performance Live" - un partenariat entre BBC Arts, Arts Council England et Battersea Arts Centre. 


Le film a été produit par Hofesh Shechter Company et Illuminations. Tourné dans l'emblématique salle de bal Rivoli, dans le sud de Londres, Hofesh Shechter's Clowns est un film de 30 minutes différent de tout ce que le public aura vu auparavant.

Hofesh Shechter Company is one of the world’s leading dance companies.
 

“We’re in the business of inspiring people. I want to change lives, like my life was changed.”
– Hofesh Shechter

We celebrate and inspire the freedom of the human spirit through dance. We travel the world with our extraordinary company of internationally diverse dancers, breaking boundaries and releasing the visceral power that lies beyond the conscious mind.

We believe that dance has the ability to prod and poke and tap into  our deepest emotions; an instinctive, deep-rooted part of ourselves that  we rarely access in modern life. We dance to know what it feels  like, not just to live, but to be alive.

In all our work, we strive to move ourselves, and our audiences, beyond reason.

We are based in the UK and create our work here and in Europe. Our  work can be seen in the UK, major European cities, Canada, USA and  beyond.

“I want audiences to be awakened, to experience  my work from the gut. Trusting the gut is to me like trusting nature, or  God, or a sense of purpose; a source, a spark. Trusting a higher and  better force than our limited oppressed cultured minds.”
– Hofesh Shechter
