Two Israeli choreographers with strong links to GöteborgsOperans Danskompani each present a world premiere. Both Shechter and Weinberger began their careers with the world-famous Batsheva Dance Company before going on to establish themselves as choreographers. Tom Weinberger is also a former member of GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. Hofesh Shechter and our company are a perfect match that have already enjoyed massive success with the show Contemporary Dance in 2019.

New creation by Hofesh Shechter
Shechter is a rock star in the world of dance. His work blurs the border between parody and sincerity. Whether as a phantasmagorical collective or individual stars, the dancers are in perpetual motion, transforming the experience through novel expressions, like a boiling ocean from which new images rise to the surface. The effect is intense, surprising, and sometimes even meditative. Hofesh Shechter creates his own atmospheric compositions to accompany his explosive physical style.
