The best and the worst of times:
Finding solace in the good and the bad

A thrilling new double bill by internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter presents two distinctly contrasting pieces of contemporary dance for our times.

One half of the evening is Clowns, a sarcastic nod to our ever-growing indifference to violence. In a macabre comedy of murder and desire, Clowns unleashes a whirlwind of choreographed anarchy, testing how far we are willing to go in the name of entertainment.

As an antidote to the murderous, poisonous energy of Clowns, Shechter’s new creation, The Fix, brings a tender, fragile energy to the stage. It offers a raw and compassionate moment to balance the forces of aggression and violence that press on us daily — a shield to protect us from the noise of life outside, and a place that allows the performers to be fragile, seen for their utmost human qualities. Violence, tenderness and hope are all laid bare through Shechter’s achingly beautiful cinematic lens.

Following his critically-acclaimed appearance in Hong Kong in 2014, Shechter opens this year’s NVAF with his latest work exploring painful truths and delving into our deepest emotions.
