Montreal, October 9, 2012 Hofesh Shechter is back in Montreal with a Canadian première! After a critical and popular success here in 2009, the Israeli choreographer is returning with Political Mother, a forceful piece that questions dictatorships and indoctrination of all sorts. Acclaimed in Europe, Asia and in Oceania, Political Mother features 10 dancers and 3 musicians, all of them fully committed to this remarkably effective work. Highly topical, Political Mother is a roaring crescendo of decibels, full-tilt dance and lots of fun. From November 1 to 3 at Théâtre Maisonneuve in Place des Arts. press release HofesH sHecHter, tHe rock star of cHoreograpHers is back witH a powerful dance piece! political MotHer November 1. 2. 3. 2012, Théâtre Maisonneuve “This is one angry piece, delivered like a roar of defiance in the face of an omnipotent, malevolent force. It’s visceral, painful and very, very exciting.” (The Times, London) The first full-length piece by Hofesh Shechter, Political Mother evokes the worlds of Uprising and In your rooms, presented at Danse Danse in 2009. First presented in England on May 20, 2010 at the Brighton Festival, the dance is performed to music by Shechter and has toured the world, including presentations at the Sydney Opera House, Théâtre de la Ville (Paris), the LG Arts Centre (Seoul) and Sadler’s Wells (London). In an interview in June 2011, Hofesh Shechter stated that “The theme of Political Mother was inspired by the way we are ready to demonstrate for distant causes but not for something close to home, in the same way that we can view horrors on television while wondering about what to have for dinner. The two worlds are unaware of each other, which creates emotional tensions that I want to explore.” “Make no mistake, this guy is a rock star, or at least the closest thing to a rock star there is in contemporary dance.” (Midi Libre, Montpellier) “(…) The hunched sexy movement and rough-hewn stage geometries could only be by him, and the 10-strong troupe dances as if there’s no tomorrow.” (The Telegraph, London)
