Mini-review – “In My Rooms” and “Uprising” – Hofesh Shechter at Sadler’s Wells


(This review copied from my former blog.)

Tonight after work Shadowdaddy and I looked for an outfit (for me) at the New Look near work for a party I’m probably going to tomorrow. Then it was off to see Hofesh Shechter at Sadlers’ Wells, where we were joined by Wechsler. Shechter still has an amazing vocabulary of male movement – I’ve really never seen a dance piece where the way the guys interacted with each other so accurately reflected how guys really act. It was also exciting and gorgeous and full of unexpected moments. The second piece, “In My Rooms,” was difficult for me to understand and seemed a bit long. Was it about alienation or the attempt to make order from chaos, or the problems in the Palestine, or something else altogether? I saw the movement and I couldn’t impose much order on it. Both of the guys thought it was great.

We had enough to talk about that we all wound up at the Charles Lamb (awesome pub), me and W working on a liter bottle of Breton cider, Shadowdaddy on some Honeydew Ale. We were all pretty worn out from the week, but it was a good night.
