Hofesh In The Yard – Perth Festival

Concert or Performance

18 Feb 2020 to 1 Mar 2020

The State Theatre Centre of WA Courtyard is transformed into a spectacle of super-charged high-octane dance with the global master of rock ‘n’ roll performance.

Recognised as one of the most-exciting artists working in contemporary dance today, Hofesh Shechter is renowned for creating his own genre. Part-dance, part-gig, part-theatre and wholly-original, his work has its own unique and instantly-identifiable voice. Spectacularly bold and ambitious, his creations are at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy.

Join Perth’s-own STRUT Dance for a Hofesh Schechter double bill to have you buzzing, performed outside and in the round by 12 independent artists from across the Asia-Pacific region. In the explosive mega-hit Uprising, seven men emerge from the shadows to bombard the stage with furious energy, bonding and sparring, making-up and falling-out. tHE bAD is a volatile explosion of dubstep grooves that is joyous and trance-like.

Drink-in-hand, you can wander through the venue and take in the action from multiple viewing-points on ground level and galleries.

Hofesh in The Yard is a Perth Festival Commission presented in association with Hofesh Shechter Company. Perth Festival is one of Western Australia’s premier cultural events.
