    Created in 2006, Hofesh Shechter’s exhilarating Uprising features seven men who emerge from the shadows to bombard the stage with virile intensity, bonding and sparring in a highly charged work set to a propulsive percussive score by the choreographer himself. Widely considered his breakthrough work, Uprising defined Shechter as a new rebellious voice in dance with an untouchable ability to captivate audiences and set hearts pounding. Utilizing a movement style that is primal and imbued with a certain high-tension energy, the 38-year-old Israeli-born Shechter has risen to become one of Europe’s most sought-after dance creators since his move to London in 2002. Uprising is the first work by Shechter to enter the Ailey repertory. Learn more: http://www.alvinailey.org/uprising
