In 2020, Hofesh Shechter will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of his iconic masterpiece Political Mother by creating a powerful new version for Shechter II.
 
Political Mother Unplugged will invoke the ferocity and spirit of the original in a new era and for a new generation of dancers, selected from the most inspiring young artists across the globe.
 
Political Mother Unplugged will draw you into a world of raw emotion and intense sensations, driven by Shechter’s contagious tribal movement and the dancers’ extraordinary skill and honesty. Danced to a bespoke, new recording of Shechter’s music and accompanied by a landscape of designed, digital animated projections, this will be a dance experience like no other
