Shechter II presents

From England with Love

  • Show Information

The multi-layered complexity of England takes centre stage in Hofesh Shechter’s compelling new work for Shechter II.

From England with Love is an ode to this intricate and beautiful country. Through Shechter’s choreography, the dancers evoke the paradox at the heart of this open, generous and soul-searching place, conflicted by its dark history and powerful attachment to old traditions. They draw us into their search for identity and self-knowledge as they grapple with this complex system of conflicting values and messages. Performed to a rich score that combines the breath-taking sounds of English composers, presented in a clash with raging rock alongside echoes of choir and electronics in an avant-garde cacophony.

Playful and poignant, full of pride and paradox, From England with Love plays like a ‘Dear John’ letter… a farewell note to friends and enemies and a peek into the heart and soul of this beautiful, yet complicated place.
