Hofesh Shechter's inspiration

Posted: 31/05/11

We asked Hofesh Shechter to tell us a few words about what inspired him to write his piece - Everyday Moments 5: late night, with headphones, in a completely, utterly, dark room, with some space to move:

'I think of this podcast as an initiation. It gives each listener an opportunity to do as they wish, to experience their own body from the inside, through a physical experience. You are in safety of your room, of the dark, and your only audience is barely you... Each one is free to take it as far as they can. The podcast draws on the idea that when moving, what matters in fact is not the shapes but the physical sensations, the feelings and thoughts that are inserted into the movement, into the body. It gives a gentle structure and recommendation for where to start. You will decide what happens. Think about this podcast like going to experience a dance show, or a music concert, but from the inside of your body. It is as silly as dancing for yourself in a room. In fact that's precisely what it is – we all should do it more!'

Listen to this podcast, along with the rest in the series released so far.

    Pour les billets hors aomenebnnt, il faut attendre. Les re9servations pour un spectacle donne9 ne sont ouvertes que quelques semaines avant le de9but des repre9sentations de ce spectacle. Et les abonne9s qui n'auraient pas choisi ce spectacle dans leur choix initial, ont le0 encore une pe9riode d'exclusivite9. Ce qui signifie qu'un non-abonne9 ne peut rendre comme place que ce qui reste, apre8s celles prises par les aomenebnnts initiaux, et celles prises par les abonne9s pendant la pe9riode d'exclusivite9 d'achat de place.Si le spectacle est de quelqu'un connu, il y a de fortes chances pour que tout soit complet quand les locations s'ouvrent pour les non-abonne9s ...Le TdV est un the9e2tre qui privile9gie tre8s fortement le syste8me des aomenebnnts. Ce n'est pas un the9e2tre fait pour y voir juste un spectacle dans l'anne9e. Et il y a une guerre de rapidite9 entre les abonne9s, qui doivent re9agir de8s la disponibilite9 des programmes sur le site Internet, bien avant la distribution de ces programmes en salle ou par la poste ... Cette anne9e, j'ai re9pondu en 15 jours je crois, et les soire9es Akram Kahn e9taient de9je0 comple8tes ...
