'As always with Shechter, the rhythm of the choreography is riveting, meticulously judged.’ The Guardian, 2009.
The Art of Not Looking Back is a work by Shechter that is inspired by, and made for, the world-class female dancers of the Hofesh Shechter Company. Physical, complex and unrelenting; Shechter’s favoured theme of ‘man against the world’ is presented in a different and entrancing light.
The Art of Not Looking Back world premiered in Brighton Dome, for Brighton Festival on 17th May 2009.
‘Just when you think you’ve got the measure of Hofesh Shechter he throws something unexpected and apt into the mix.’ The Times, 2009.
Commissioned by Brighton Festival. Restaged in 2011 with support from DanceXchange.
