HOME is welcoming back the internationally celebrated Hofesh Shechter Company with their latest work, Grand Finale, a spectacularly bold and ambitious new piece featuring ten dancers and six musicians.

With choreography and music by Hofesh Shechter, design by Tom Scutt and lighting by Tom Visser, this highly anticipated new work sees the company return to live music, played on stage by a sextet of classical musicians.

Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Filtering this irrepressible spirit, Shechter creates a vision of a world in freefall, part gig, part dance, part theatre and wholly original.

The production received its world premiere at La Villette in Paris in June 2017 in a co-production with Théâatre de la Ville prior to a critically acclaimed UK premiere in September at Sadler’s Wells, London, It has since enjoyed an extensive international tour to leading venues and festivals in the UK and around the world, including Colours International Dance Festival Stuttgart, Dansens Hus Oslo, Danse Danse Montreal, Brooklyn Academy of Music New York as well as HOME.

The company’s exceptional ensemble of dancers comes from eight different countries, including Chien-Ming Chang, Frederic Despierre, Rachel Fallon, Mickael Frappat, Yeji Kim, Kim Kohlmann, Erion Kruja, Merel Lammers, Attila Ronai, Diogo Sousa with Associate Director Bruno Guillore.
