So, for example, he reworked his landmark 2010 Political Mother to be shown at the Brixton O2 Academy, where it was rapturously received by packed houses and added to his already loyal and vocal following
This is the group Shechter is bringing to the Lyric Hammersmith with a three act programme called Show. His 2016 Clowns, which won critic acclaim when performed by the Nederlands Dans Theater in the Hague, will be sandwiched between two other works called, appropriately, The Entrance and Exit.
Danced to Shechter’s own pulsating, vertiginous, percussion-heavy score, Show revolves around a group of anarchy performers as they play their part in a macabre circus of comedy, murder and desire. As with all of Shechter’s work, it is loud, forceful, often funny and at times touching; it is certain to make its mark on the audience.
With Clowns already a proven success, much anticipation surrounds Show as a whole not only in Britain, but internationally, as this programme comes to the Lyric Hammersmith as part of a world tour.
