A rhythmic, fiercely energetic and exhilarating performance from celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter and his award-winning company Shechter II.

Contemporary Dance 2.0 unleashes the intensity of Shechter’s signature ensemble work combined with an eclectic sound score with a euphoric feel and throbbing beats.

In a work that is dipped in ironic references to pop culture and makes a playful take on Shechter’s own art form, in Contemporary Dance 2.0 only one thing is certain the dancers do it their way.

Inspired by the original production created for GoteborgsOperans Danskompani in 2019 Contemporary Dance 2.0 is re-imagined by Shechter II, the very best of the next generation of world-class performers aged 18-25.

Please note: Age Guidance of 13+ due to strong language.
