The Hofesh Schechter Company is one of the world’s leading dance companies, and strives to create works that have the potential to make real, powerful connections with audiences, individuals and communities.
The Company also sets out to challenge preconceptions of the possibilities of live performance and, through this, to inspire young people to invest time and energy in the arts.
Established in 2008, in response to popular demand following the smash hit success of the double bill Uprising/In your rooms, Shechter, Helen Shute and Colette Hansford formed Hofesh Shechter Company and the Company embarked on its first world tour. Since then the Company can be found performing in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia and reaching audiences in many of the world’s leading dance venues. Recent tours have included South America and the Middle East with the global appetite for Shechter’s work continuing.
Hofesh is an Associate Artist of Sadler’s Wells and Hofesh Shechter Company is Resident Company at Brighton Dome.
