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 double bill. It will include a new work (still under wraps) and his 2016 Clowns, which won critic acclaim when performed by the Nederlands Dans Theater in the Hague.
Danced to Shechter’s own pulsating, vertiginous, percussion-heavy score, Clowns is a high-energy work, a darkly comic portrayal of a group of anarchic clowns, performed on a red smoky scene. 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 the second piece of the evening, not only in Britain, but internationally, as this programme comes to the Lyric Hammersmith as part of a world tour.
