'Cult' is the second work we have featured from the Shechter stable of choreography. A quick browse of the archive reveals a solo pice called 'Untitled' by Barebones Dance Company a piece, like 'Cult' that demonstrates this dance makers ability to create superb movement and get the very best from his dancers.
The press info tell us this much;
"Cult is an explosive, electric piece that delivers physical, virtuoso dance, embraced by elegant stage compositions and an overall gripping atmosphere. This stylistic work presents a dark, ironic view of the powers that steer our society and ourselves. Values tumble over each other, leaving the 6 dancers with the naked truth of their existence - struggling for a purpose they do not understand."
As ever we tend to disregard such musings and head straight to the dance. A former dancer with Jasmin Vardimon Company, Hofesh displays an outstanding ability, that we think should be built in to all dance makers, the ability to create really good movement. If it has meaning for the masses then all the better but if in doubt, focus on the dance making.
At present further details about the company and their touring plans are hard to come by but this is an emerging company so stay tuned and demand answers from your local dance agency if the company is coming to your area. We shall keep you posted when we find out more.
'Cult' was performed by, Tim Morris, Delphine Gaborit, Jin Yeob cha, Yen Ching Ling, Moshe Shechter & Hofesh Shechter who also created the music (does the man ever sleep? Ed!)
