Lyric Hammersmith
No Matinee

Shechter’s blackly comic portrayal of a group of anarchic clowns was rapturously received at Nederlands Dans Theater in 2016, and he now creates a brand new companion piece to sit alongside it. With its razor-sharp lighting and pulsating score, Shechter’s work has the energy of a rock gig combined with beautiful, moving choreography.

“We’re harpies.
We’re a three headed bitch.
We’ve been guarding the gates. 
Now we’re throwing them open.”

They’re singing. They’re moving. They’re taking up space. And they refuse to apologise.
