In your rooms

Brimming with gritty physicality, Hofesh Shechter‘s In your rooms is at times provocative, political and deeply personal, presenting a society that is scarily alienating and yet shockingly familiar.

A collective of dancers reveal shifting motives, lack of control and vulnerabilities through intricate, touching encounters. The work features an original score, created by Hofesh in collaboration with Nell Catchpole (The Gogmagogs).

Performed live, Hofesh’s hauntingly beautiful score envelops the stage as music and dance combine forces to create a truly magical atmosphere.

“A performance of truly extraordinary beauty and profundity […] probably the most important new dance-work to be created in Britain since the millennium”
