UK PREMIERE 

The world is perfect. From the darkness of Shechter’s emotive and often angry world emerges a bright white light dancing out of the smoke and chaos. With an expanded company of 14 world-class dancers and an eclectic soundtrack featuring original music by Shechter himself, this exciting new work follows the phenomenal success of Political Mother.

"Shechter is a true original"
THE GUARDIAN

Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter is one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary artists, having gained international renown for his raw, honest choreography and highly-charged, atmospheric music scores. The international dancers of Hofesh Shechter Company have achieved worldwide renown, touring his hit shows Political Mother, Uprising, The Art of Not Looking Back and In Your Rooms. They return once again to Sadler’s Wells to unveil the hotly anticipated UK premiere of Shechter’s latest work, Sun.

"Hofesh Shechter looks set to do for dance what the YBAs did for art, which is to propel it from an elite periphery into the mainstream"
