First look images have been released of Double Murder, a thrilling new double bill by internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter, presented as two distinctly contrasting pieces for our times – Clowns and The Fix. The production will open to press at Sadler’s Wells on Wednesday 15 September prior to an international tour before returning to play at HOME in Manchester in June with further UK dates to be announced.
With a sarcastic nod to our ever-growing indifference to violence, Clowns unleashes a whirlwind of choreographed anarchy, asking how far are we willing to go in the name of entertainment.
Shechter’s new creation, The Fix, brings a tender, fragile energy to the stage. It offers a human, raw and compassionate moment where violence, tenderness and hope are all laid bare through Shechter’s achingly beautiful, cinematic lens.
Performed by ten of his inimitable dancers and accompanied by the epic sounds of a Shechter-composed score, Double Murder will expose painful truths and delve into our deepest emotions.
