Young lions of modern dance – Hofesh Shechter, Kyle Abraham – set to roar 2


A very rich week in dance is upon us. Two strong young choreographic voices are contending across town, both are must viewing, indeed game changers, for the art form.

Hofesh-Shechter Wednesday and Thursday nights, the Israeli-born, London-based, pants-on-fire Hofesh Shechter brings “Political Mother” to Royce Hall (huge thumbs up on that title, Hofesh).

And the equally well-titled “The Radio Show” by Abraham.In.Motion, straight outta Brooklyn, spreads Kyle Abraham’s luscious moves over a four-night stretch at REDCAT downtown.

Read my piece about Kyle in this Sunday’s Los Angeles Times “Arts & Books” section.

Both recommended…

    Larry, you know I hate to disagree with you. I am just home from seeing “Political Mother.” Hofesh Shechter’s pants are on fire. Get thee to Royce Hall Thursday night.

    Hofesh pants-on-fire? Naw, it’s the lucky pants filling the seats that get the fire. I am fascinated by him as now that he is also scoring his work, he is more of a force to be reckoned with. Sorry I am missing this but getting lots of YouTube tastes.
