Dancer, choreographer, musician. Hofesh Shechter is all that. His distinctive style, which has brought him worldwide fame, can also be seen in Grand Finale. Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Grand Finale shows us a dreamlike world, which inevitably moves towards the end, but which also has a glimpse of hope. Stunning live music and an exceptional ensemble of dancers enthrall you during the whole piece.
