This incredible production promises to be a fantastic night’s entertainment.
Hofesh Shechter OBE’s acclaimed choreography for Political Mother Unplugged brought Shechter II to international notice. The same programme now brings another group of exciting dancers to Milton Keynes with Contemporary Dance 2.0. This forms part of the company’s development and performance training programme for world-class young dancers.
There are ironic references to pop culture and a playful take on dance.
Contemporary Dance 2.0 combines Shechter’s signature ensemble work with an eclectic score of throbbing beats, pulsating hip hop, folk and Bach. It creates club-like euphoria both on stage and in the audience.

What the Press Says
“The mighty contemporary choreographer – a combination of dance-maker and rock-star, but with film-director sensibilities.”
New York Times:
“One of the British dance scene’s hottest properties, the creator of works that are full of raw, visceral energy, set to blasting percussive scores that he composes himself.”
“There is no sitting in contemplation at a Shechter gig. For pure, heart-pounding excitement, there is simply no one to touch him.”
