Digital Stage

Digital Stage In Focus is our series of online collaborations with artists and companies to co-create a unique programme that gives you a chance to take a deep dive into the work.

In the Sadler’s Wells x Hofesh Shechter Company collaboration, take a closer look at the visceral, ground-breaking work of associate artist Hofesh Shechter featuring the critically acclaimed Grand Finale and three company-devised workshops.

First, Take Part in the Get Into Dance Workshop, a chance to explore the distinctive movement style of Hofesh Shechter. Hosted by the Company’s Associate Artistic Director Bruno Guillore, participants will experience the Company’s daily warm-up, which is suitable for all ages and abilities.

Third, we featured an on-demand screening of Grand Finale, a vision of a dystopian world in freefall that is both bleak and beautiful. Part gig, part dance and part theatre, this bold work was first debuted in Paris in 2017 and went on to see international success. This film is no longer available online, however you can watch the trailer to Grand Finale here.
