Poster for Hofesh Shechter’s From England with Love

Venue: artsdepot, 5 Nether Street, Tally Ho Corner, North Finchley N12 0GA

Date/Time: Wednesday 8th-Thursday 9th May

Info: The multi-layered complexity of England takes centre stage in Hofesh Shechter’s compelling new work for Shechter II.

From England with Love is an ode to this intricate and beautiful country. Through Shechter’s choreography, the dancers evoke the paradox at the heart of this open, generous and soul-searching place, conflicted by its dark history and powerful attachment to old traditions. They draw us into their search for identity and self-knowledge as they grapple with this complex system of values. Performed to a rich score that combines the breathtaking sounds of English composers, presented in a clash with raging rock alongside echoes of choir and electronics in an avant-garde cacophony.
