Eric Harvie Theatre, The Banff Centre,
October 24 7:30 pm

Co-presented by the Fluid Festival & the Banff Centre

In 2009 Hofesh Shechter wowed Calgary audiences with “Uprising” and “In Your Rooms.” Now this British-Israeli choreographer and musician returns to set the Fluid Festival stage ablaze with furious dance, explosive music and virtuosic performances. The infinitely unpredictable Shechter presents three wildly different takes on intimacy, passion and the banality of love. A truly contemporary confession set to an ecclesiastic baroque score, inspires a sparse world in which dancers move with mathematical passion and precision. A percussive score drives a fluid, urban movement score, inspired by groove and darkness, and a new duet is flavoured with the quirky and unique performance styles of each dancer. BARBARIANS is an extraordinarily elegant and intimate offering from one of the world’s most sought after choreographers.

Hofesh Shechter is renowned for fearless “zeitgeisty, gutsy dance” (The Melbourne Age), for expanding the boundaries of the art form, and for shapes that sear into your mind.

superb stuff: juicy, nervy ensembles and a wittily unsettling commentary.
