Sydney Opera House presents
Hofesh Shechter: Political Mother
July 1 – 4 / Drama Theatre
“PART DANCE SHOW, PART HEAVY-ROCK GIG, HOFESH SHECHTER’S WORK IS AN AUDIO VISUAL MARVEL – * * * * *” THE TELEGRAPH, UK
Make no mistake, Political Mother is loud. It is also a vigorous and highly ambitious dance work from the Israeli-born, UK-based choreographer and composer who is astonishing dance audiences the world over.
Performed by ten dancers, Political Mother is militant, powerful and fuelled by real anger. Hofesh Shechter’s puzzle of political indoctrination – of freedom and war, honour and service, duty and sacrifice – unravels in a sensory overload of percussive grooves, electric guitars and the pounding of drums live on stage in Shechter’s own cinematic score.
After the World Premiere of Political Mother in May 2010 at the Brighton Festival, reviewers across the world have been reaching for superlatives: Political Mother has ‘the totality of Wagner and a power like nothing on this earth.’ THE BRIGHTON MAGAZINE.
