Dance-rock heaven: Don't miss 'Political Mother' at Brixton Academy

Andrzej Lukowski

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:
