Contemporary Dance 2.0
The terrific young ensemble Shechter II was able to thrill audiences at last year's festival with "Political Mother Unplugged", and is now presenting another creation by Hofesh Shechter at the reunion: Contemporary Dance 2.0, again as a festival co-production. The Swedish Dagens Nyheter reported: "[...] a bombastic performance that everyone should see." The young artists, aged 18 to 25, who are selected every two years, are recruited from the most extraordinary dancers from all over the world. Eight dancers reinterpret contemporary dance and deliver a rhythmic, energetic and captivating performance with an eclectic soundtrack of beats, hip-hop, folk, Bach and ironic pop culture references.
A co-production of Düsseldorf Festival! and Espace 1789 Saint-Quen
