Dates & times

A thrilling new double bill by internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter, presenting two distinctly contrasting pieces for our times.
With a sarcastic nod to our ever-growing indifference to violence, Clowns, originally created for Nederlands Dans Theater 1 and later produced as a film for the BBC, unleashes a whirlwind of choreographed anarchy, asking, “How far are we willing to go in the name of entertainment?”
