This performance is Pay What You Can.

A rhythmic, fiercely energetic and exhilarating performance from celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter and his award winning company Shechter II. 

Contemporary Dance 2.0 unleashes the intensity of Shechters signature ensemble work combined with an eclectic sound score with euphoric feel and throbbing beats. 

In a work that is dipped in ironic references to pop culture and making a playful take on Shechters own art form, in Contemporary Dance 2.0 only one thing is certain, the dancers do it their way. 

Inspired by the original production created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani in 2019 Contemporary Dance 2.0 is re-imagined by Shechter II, the very best of the next generation of world-class performers aged 18-25. 


“The mighty contemporary choreographer – a combination of dance-maker and rock-star, but with film-director sensibilities.” The Times

“One of the British dance scene’s hottest properties, the creator of works that are full of raw, visceral energy, set to blasting percussive scores that he composes himself.” New York Times

“There is no sitting in thoughtful contemplation at a Shechter gig. For pure, heart-pounding excitement, there is simply no one to touch him.” Daily Express
