Come September and dance enthusiasts in India have something to celebrate about!


The Hofesh Shechter Company will mark their India debut with their latest showcase 'Political Mother'. The tour comprises an exciting set of activities and performance from 1 to 21 September spanning across cities Hyderabad, Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Chennai.


Political Mother brims with Shechter’s emotional and gritty complexity as an ever more surreal chain of images makes our existence seem more impossible than the events taking place in front of us. A Chinese puzzle of encounters leads to amusing, sad and shocking events that confuse our values and challenge our perceptions of what is normal. It is performed by 10 dancers of the Hofesh Shechter Company and accompanied by Shechter’s cinematic score performed by a band of live musicians. It promises to enthral audiences by astonishing unisons, percussive grooves and a raw and honest physicality mark him as one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent years.


Hofesh Schector Dance Company will perform in Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata. For venue details please click on your preferred city.
