Hofesh Shechter captures our urban angst with immediacy and assault.
Théâtre des Abbesses, Paris – May 11, 2015
Shechter Junior, an apprentice compliment to The Hofesh Shechter Company, was formed in 2014 with eight young, international dancers. Its world debut in May was in a mixed bill titled deGeneration at the Théâtre des Abbesses in Paris, when they presented Fragments and Cult, and the premiere of Disappearing Act. In an hour-long evening sans entr’acte, the dancers served up Shechter’s choreography with full-fledged attack and still looked like they had more to give.
