And so it will be with Shechter Underground, which is based on his hit show Clowns, recently seen at the Lyric Hammersmith. A macabre play of circus, comedy, murder and desire, Clowns has been adapted to respond directly to Somerset House’s historic setting.
A group of dancers will take audiences through spaces not normally open to the public; and if Shechter II’s shows at the Lyric Hammersmith earlier this year are anything to go by, the young dancers’ absolute engagement with their performance is likely to communicate itself to the audience, so that spectators will be inexorably drawn into the show.
