A trilogy by Hofesh Shechter: three wildly different takes on intimacy, passion and the banality of love.

Revealing his choreography at its most elegant and intimate, the barbarians in love opens the evening. Six white-clad figures move as one to the strains of an ecclesiastic baroque score. This world is soon exploded in tHE bAD, when innocence is lost, and its trance-like dup-step grooves transition into the final piece, a darkly emotional duet. 

This completes the triple bill showcasing the singular voice of Shechter and the versatility of his dancers.

"Superb stuff: juicy, nervy ensembles and a wittily unsettling commentary"
THE GUARDIAN (on barbarians in love)
