l'Avant Seine / Théâtre de Colombes, Colombes, International, France
Perfection becomes warped and harmony gives way to a visceral depiction of antagonism and violence in Shechter's disruptive work, Sun.
From the courtly idyll that sets the scene to the clean, spare vision of a ‘perfect’ world, Shechter’s choreography embraces frenetic abandon and his signature understated intricacy in a work that confronts the pastoral horror of colonialism with a hint of sharp humour. A cast of 14 dancers is accompanied by an eclectic soundtrack that includes original music by Shechter.
