Northrop Dance and Walker Art Center Present the Minnesota Debut of Hofesh Shechter Company, 11/13

October 31
2:07 PM 2012

Northrop Dance and Walker Art Center present Political Mother choreographed by Hofesh Shechter, and performed by Hofesh Shechter Company. This tour de force from Britain's fieriest choreographer, Israeli-born Hofesh Shechter, Political Mother has garnered glowing praise worldwide for its emotional tension, gritty complexity, and explosive collision of politics and movement. A relentlessly physical version of traditional folk dance features 10 dancers unleashing a rapid-fire chain of surreal images set to an explosive score performed by a blistering eight-piece live band. Warning: it might get loud.

Tue, Nov 13, 6:15 – 7:00 pm
Solera Restaurant, Second floor

This panel discussion will look at the evolution of Hofesh Shechter, as a dancer in Israel and now with his own company, through a context for his work presented by dance scholar Judith Brin Ingber and her recent work Seeing Israeli and Jewish Dance (Wayne State University Press). This performance preview is hosted by co-artistic directors of Twin Cities-based Black Label Movement, Carl Flink and Emilie Plauché Flink.
