Grand Finale (2017)  world premiere



Hofesh Shechter chooses powerful titles for his pieces, as he composes powerful percussive musical scores for them.  Grande Finale is the title he chose for his latest choreography and it rocks ! In a sort of "ultimate" mood which prefectly fits with the apocalyptic theme he intends to bring on stage. This choreographer, who moves forward by instinct, follows his desires articulating them in some strong
​scegraphic frames and he has no hesitation in heightening tension on stage. Between humour and discipline, he firmly holds onto the reins of what he wants to say when he chooses the subjects of his pieces. For Grand Finale fluctuating between "anarchic energy and violent comedy", Hofesh Shechter, living and working in London since 2002, immerses dance in a high-flying pool of sounds. Grande Finale is accompanied by musicians playing live on stage. Capable of performing traditional music as well as "rock", they help evoking "the surreal and impossible tale of human mind".
