The choreographer Hofesh Shechter offers two shows, “In your rooms” and “uprising at the Paris Opera.
A collaboration with Cedric Klapisch
With two striking pieces from his debut which entered the repertoire of the Paris Opera and a collaboration with Cédric Klapisch in the movie ” En corps”, the Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter is doubly on view in France this spring. Hofesh Shechter, 46-year-old Israeli, is known for his punchy shows for which he signs the music, the scenography and the dance. After The Art of Not Looking Back, which entered the repertoire of the Ballet de l’Opéra in 2018, Hofesh Shechter presents two new pieces to the dancers of the Company: Uprising (2006) and In your rooms (2007). Two early works in which the choreographer’s style is already recognizable: a telluric dance in states of trance, a central place given to rhythm.
Two striking pieces
Uprising brings together seven men, who emerge into the light, moved by a force that seems to drag them ever further, before disappearing into the darkness. In your rooms involves nine dancers in a bewitching choreography to the sound of music composed by the dancer himself, the true DNA of his kinetic vision of movement. A show that combines electrifying dance, powerful scenography and live music.
“Uprising”. “In your rooms”.
