Hofesh Shechter’s 'Political Mother' is one of the great dance shows of our time, an incredibly visceral, muscular affair in which ten dancers perform to a furious backing of live electric guitar and drumming. As the jewel in the crown of ‘#Hofest’ – a month-long mini festival dedicated to the works of the marvellous Mr Shechter – it’s coming back for a brace of extremely special shows at Brixton Academy, where the audience will be on their feet, watching the show as if it was a gig – which in a way it is. If you’re keen to try some dance from the wilder side, we can heartily recommend it.
‘Political Mother’ is at the Brixton Academy, Oct 7 and 8. Check out a taster of the action below:
