Internationally acclaimed dancers from the Hofesh Shechter Company will arrive in the city this week to begin rehearsals ahead of their huge stage spectacular ‘Political Mother: Derry~Londonderry Uncut’ on March 8-9 at the new Ebrington Venue.
Not only will these world-class dancers be preparing for the show itself, they will also be working alongside local groups to create several exciting new dance pieces.
This will culminate on March 9 with a number of free performances at landmarks throughout the city.
Speaking of the forthcoming dance collaborations, globally renowned choreographer Hofesh Shechter said: “The dancers are looking forward to getting to Derry. They’ll work with young dancers to put on smaller pieces called ‘Shortcuts’ in different locations with local youth groups, Irish dancing groups, schools and university students who have already been selected and booked to take part. The dancer’s choreography will be inspired by ‘Political Mother’ and using some of the same movements, so that’s a great way to get the young people interested and involved.”
Tickets for what’s sure to be one of the biggest events of 2013, ‘Political Mother: Derry~Londonderry Uncut’ are on sale now.
