Internationally-acclaimed artist, Hofesh Shechter, has single-handedly created a new genre: part dance, part gig, part theatre and wholly original, his work has its own instantly identifiable and entirely unique voice. Spectacularly bold and ambitious, his creations are at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy.

Since 2017, STRUT has been working with the training and methodology that underpins  Hofesh Shechter’s unique vision with a leadership team from the current Shechter company. 300 Australian and Asia Pacific Dance Artists and Choreographers have been able to profit from an exclusive multi-year partnership, unique in the Australian arts sector.

This partnership will now culminate in a re-staging of Shecher’s Uprising and tHE bAD - HOFESH IN THE YARD - an innovative space activation of the Courtyard of the State Theatre Centre of WA. Up close and personal with the master of rock and roll performance, HOFESH IN THE YARD will transform the Courtyard of the State Theatre Centre of WA into a mosh pit of super charged, high-octane dance.
