The Art of Not Looking Back 15/5
The physicality and precision of the dancers' moves was astounding in a beautiful piece with an underlying darkness. It's always hard to impose a narrative or decide what a work like this is 'about' but debate raged in the pub afterwards with fellow audience members as we'd all interpreted it in different ways – probably all of us wrong!
This is the first time I've seen Shechter's work and while modern dance is often a 'difficult' medium, I'm sure he'll be winning hearts and minds through amazing works like this.
**** UPDATE: This show won 'Best International Act' at the Latest Festival and Fringe Awards
