Hofesh Shechter’s Clowns is reimagined for the first time on screen in a bold and thrilling new production. Shot on location at the iconic Rivoli Ballroom in South London, Clowns is an intense dance performance unlike anything audiences will have ever seen before. Directed, choreographed and composed by Hofesh Shechter, it features ten dancers of his world class company playing out a macabre comedy of murder and desire, and asks: how far will we go in the name of entertainment? The piece combines Hofesh’s bold, exhilarating and tribal choreography with a percussive, cinematic score and the camera gets up close to the exceptionally talented ensemble of dancers from 8 different countries.
