Description

  In 2018, the Théâtres de la Ville dedicated a whole week to Hofesh Shechter Company. This season, the internationally renowned choreographer returns with his new work: Double Murder . Performed by ten of Hofesh Shechter's inimitable dancers and accompanied by the epic sounds of a score composed by Shechter himself, this exciting double-bill will expose painful truths and plunge us into our deepest emotions.
Clowns is a satirical nod to our growing indifference to violence. Originally created for Nederlands Dans Theater 1, yet reworked for this new performance, Clowns is a macabre comedy of murder and desire that unleashes a maelstrom of choreographed anarchy and tests the human limits of entertainment.
As an antidote to the deadly and poisonous energy of Clowns , a tender and fragile energy is brought to the stage in Shechter's new creation, The Fix . In an effort to counterbalance the forces of aggression and violence that overwhelm us every day, this piece creates a moment of compassion,  a shield that protects us from the noise of the outside world and a place that enables the performers to shine, to be fragile and divulge their greatest human qualities. Shechter's painfully beautiful cinematic lens lays bare violence, tenderness and hope.
