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 a company of world-class dancers and an eclectic soundtrack featuring original music by Shechter himself, this exciting new work enjoyed its UK premiere last Autumn at Sadler's Wells.

**** "The only dance-maker on Earth even attempting shows this eye-poppingly packed with wit, energy and ambition"

Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter is one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary artists, having gained international renown for his “complex, arresting choreography” (The Guardian) and highly charged, atmospheric music scores. The international dancers of Hofesh Shechter Company have achieved worldwide acclaim, touring his hit shows Political Mother, Uprising, The Art of Not Looking Back and In Your Rooms. They return to Sadler’s Wells with their newest piece, the Sadler’s Wells co-commission Sun.
