Description

Famous for his energy-saturated, direct style and the powerful, cinematic music that the trained percussionist often creates himself, in Theatre of Dreams Hofesh Shechter and his British-based company plunge deep into a world of fantasy and the unconscious, inhabited by fears, hopes and desires. In a series of surreal encounters, the dancers create a dream landscape on stage which, in their continued collaboration with lighting designer Tom Visser, is transformed into an overwhelming sculptural space. Together with live musical elements, Hofesh Shechter and his company succeed in shifting between dreaming and waking, between poetry and reality in a Gesamtkunstwerk made up of dance, music and light: “Goosebumps are the least one can expect from a Hofesh Shechter show.” (Le Monde).

Produced by Hofesh Shechter Company. Commissioned by Théâtre de la Ville-Paris. Co-produced by Sadler's Wells London, Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, Seongnam Arts Center/Seongnam Cultural Fondation, Danse Danse Montréal, MC2 : Maison de la Culture de Grenoble - Scène nationale, Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen, Central - La Louvière, Théâtre Sénart-Scène Nationale, Torinodanza Festival/ Teatro Stabile di Torino-Teatro Nazionale, Festspielhaus St. Pölten, La Comédie de Clermont-Ferrand scène nationale, Maison de la danse, Lyon-Pôle européen de création, Les Gémeaux-Scène Nationale de Sceaux, Château Rouge, scène conventionnée–Annemasse, Scène nationale Châteauvallon-Liberté, Scène Nationale ALBI-Tarn, Le Carré Sainte-Maxime.
