Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter is known for his distinctive mix of dance, theatre and music-gig, combined to form an altogether original and exhilarating experience. After its thundering run last autumn, Grand Finale revives a vision of a world in freefall that is both bleak and beautiful.

In a design by Tom Scutt, ten dancers summon a world at odds with itself. Amongst a series of monolithic structures, they are driven on by Shechter’s original music and an on-stage band playing on throughout the anarchic energy and violent comedy.
