Dances of 2016: Barbarians (Hofesh Shechter)

Hofesh Shechter


Featuring gold catsuits (imagine you are in the flames of hell – well hotter than that – that’s how hot we are” one dancer quips about his body temperature), lederhosen and powerful futuristic lighting scanning the audience like a barcode. Barbarians was, for me, a searing performance that left me confused, excited and questioning. Thundering music reminding me of my clubbing days and intense performances especially by Maëva Berthelot and Sam Coren combined in a performance that has lingered on in my mind since October at The Dome, Brighton.
