Dance/Live Music  The contemporary world is a sinking ship with a band of musicians that carry on playing till the end: in ‘Grand Finale’ star choreographer Hofesh Shechter slams a graphic dystopian vision of human life on the verge of the abyss onto the stage. The Israeli described in the British press as “the biggest beast in British choreography” is a former artist in residence at Festspielhaus St. Pölten. In his latest work the artist has evolved an ecstatic soundscape in which six live classical musicians react to his own rhythmic compositions with motifs by Tchaikovsky. Between comedy and darkness, between chaos and harmony Shechter creates a powerful and brave version of classical ballet’s “grand finale”.
