Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter’s work is part dance, part gig, part theatre and is instantly identifiable.

Balancing on the comic and the bleak, the anarchic and the violent, ten dancers share the stage with a band of musicians, playing an original score to the backing track of Shechter’s trademark cinematic electronic sounds and vocal chants.

From the creator of the modern classic Political Mother, Grand Finale is a bold and powerful vision of a world in freefall, where emotions spiral away as humanity is catapulted towards the abyss.

★★★★ "Heart-stopping. Shechter's Grand Finale has arrived with a bang."
